LBUSD Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

The following uses of school-provided Educational Technology are not allowed:

  1. access, upload, download, or distribute pornographic, obscene, or sexually explicit material;
  2. transmit obscene, abusive, or sexually explicit language;
  3. violate any local, state or federal statute or regulation;
  4. vandalize, damage, or disable the property of another individual or organization;
  5. access another individual’s materials, information, or files without permission;
  6. violate copyright laws or otherwise use the intellectual property of another individual or organization without permission.
  7. access, upload, download, or distribute any non-educational materials.


The school district expects that faculty will blend thoughtful use of Educational Technology throughout the curriculum and will provide guidance and instruction to students in its use. As much as possible, access from school to Educational Technology resources will be structured in ways which point students to resources, which have been evaluated by appropriate staff prior to use. While students will be able to move beyond these resources to others that have not been previewed by staff, they shall be provided with guidance to resources particularly suited to learning objectives.

Students utilizing school-provided Educational Technology are responsible for good behavior and proper communication when on-line just as they are in a classroom or other area of the school. Each user account includes a home directory and access to various shared information. This limited storage space is provided for user information that is created and used in direct relation to academic pursuits. Images, music, games and other files that are not being used in class or for class related assignments are not allowed and may be deleted without notice.

The purpose of school-provided Educational Technology is to facilitate communications in support of research and education. To remain eligible as users of these tools, a student’s use must be in support of and consistent with the educational objectives of the district. Access is a privilege, not a right and entails responsibility.

Educational Purposes Only

Students should not expect that information stored on school-based computers will always be private. Electronic information, messages and files stored on school-based computers may be treated like school lockers. Administrators may review any and all information to maintain system integrity and insure that students are acting responsibly.

The school’s computers are to be used for educational purposes only. The site administration has the final say as to what is educational.
