Technology is a great tool that can be used for God’s glory when properly used. Weimar Academy utilizes technology in it’s program and wishes to enter into an agreement with each student and family desiring to attend the school.
The Internet is a powerful resource for expanding the educational experience of each student. Access to the Internet will enable students to explore unlimited resources while exchanging messages with other users throughout the world. Unfortunately, it is true that some materials accessible via the Internet may contain items that are illegal, defamatory, inaccurate or offensive. We believe, however, that the benefits to students in information resources and opportunities for collaboration exceed the disadvantages.
Since the network is provided for students to conduct research and communicate with others, access is given to students who agree to act in a considerate and responsible manner. Parental permission is required. Access is a privilege–not a right. Access entails responsibility. School staff may review files and communications to maintain system integrity and ensure that users are using the system responsibly. We want there to be no confusion on how technology is to be used during the school year. Please read carefully the following statements below, initialing in the spaces provided, those statements that you agree with and then sign at the bottom. Thank you

As a reminder, technology is a wonderful tool that can be used for God’s glory when used properly. Weencourage you to make good choices in order for you to enjoy your freedoms and we look forward toseeing how the Lord will bless your efforts in the use of technology.
I understand that the Internet can provide students with valuable learning experiences.
I understand that the school provides a filtering system on computers connected to the Internet and that every reasonable effort will be made to provide supervision. I also understand that the school cannot completely control what is accessed.
I accept that, while teachers will always exercise their duty of care, protection against exposure to harmful information must depend finally upon responsible use by students
