Users should not expect that files stored on district servers will be private.  Files may be opened, monitored and reviewed at any time to ensure that students are using the system responsibly and in conformance with this policy.

The Roseburg School District attempts to provide a safe, filtered network environment.  Students and parents are advised that using the district’s system might provide access to information that contains inaccurate or objectionable material. Accessing information on the Internet is ultimately the responsibility of the user. The district does not condone the use of obscene or other objectionable materials; such materials are prohibited in the school environment.

Failure to follow this policy and its regulations could result in suspension or cancellation of user privileges and could result in disciplinary action up to and including expulsion.  District Due Process procedures will apply.
