Acceptable Use Policy

New Brunswick

What an AUP is and why you should consider using one

The acceptable use policy is a contract students (and their parents) sign to indicate that they realize the expectations that accompany the use of computers (and other technologies) in the school. It covers the essentials of Policy 311 and provides teachers with an opportunity to clearly go over what is allowed and what is prohibited with regards to computer use.

Once the documents are handed out and signed, you should collect them and keep them in a safe location. You may wish to have them signed as students enter the BBT program or at the start of the year, with the homeroom teacher assuming the responsibility for them.
