The Roseburg School District has attempted to provide a safe 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.
