Wayland Public Schools Acceptable Use/ Internet Safety Policy (AUP/ISP)
The Wayland School District (WPS) believes that the use of computer networked resources, electronic communications, and the Internet have become an integral part of the educational program. It is understood that all of our computer networked services are provided exclusively for educational purposes; those that are related to the preparation and completion of classroom lessons, assignments and other pertinent school business.
With proper filtering through our Juniper Firewall, supervision and education in place, it is still the responsibility of all computer users to make sure they comply with providing a safe and secure learning environment when using technology.
