Longview Independent School District
Student Acceptable Use of the Electronic Communications System
And Parent/Guardian Request for Restriction Form (Opt-Out)
2016-2017

The Longview Independent School District has established a District electronic communications system to facilitate the educational process and administrative services. The District communications system includes access to computers, printers, and other network resources, the Internet, and when assigned electronic mail.

Use of the District electronic communications system comes with certain responsibilities. All training in the use of the District’s system will emphasize its ethical use, online safety, appropriate online behavior including interaction on social network websites and chat rooms, and cyber bullying awareness and response. However, it is possible that your child may come across some material you might find objectionable. While the District will take reasonable steps to preclude access to such material through electronic filtering and classroom management, it is not possible for the District to guarantee that it can completely prevent such access.

Parents/guardians please take a few minutes to review this document with your child. Although District teachers and administrators will continue to emphasize proper behavior, your help in stressing the importance of the guidelines will go a long way toward ensuring compliance.

Parents/guardians have the right to restrict access by completing this form and returning it to your child’s school. The request for restriction (opt-out) is kept on file for the current school year. If no documentation is on file, it will be assumed that permission for Internet and electronic communications usage has been granted.

Violation of any provisions in this document may result in suspension or revocation of system access, or other disciplinary or legal action, in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct and applicable law. Refer to the Student Code of Conduct for information about consequences of improper use. When applicable, law enforcement agencies may be involved.
