Network Computing Policy

The Northern Valley Regional High School District is responsible for securing its network and computing systems to a reasonable and economically feasible degree against unauthorized access and/or abuse, while making them accessible for authorized and legitimate users. This responsibility includes informing users, both registered and unregistered, of expected standards of conduct and the disciplinary or legal consequences for not adhering to them. Any attempt to violate the provisions of this policy will result in disciplinary action, including but not limited to temporary revocation of user accounts, regardless of the success or failure of the attempt. Permanent revocations may result if disciplinary actions are taken by the administrator called upon to investigate network abuses.

The users of the network are responsible for respecting and adhering to local, state, federal and international laws. Any attempt to break those laws through the use of the network may result in litigation against the offender by the proper authorities. If such an event should occur, this organization will fully comply with the authorities to provide any information necessary for the litigation process. Students shall refrain from making any disparaging remarks on “blogging and social media networking” sites (see section on Bullying/Harassment and The Disciplinary Point System for consequences).
