Internet Safety Policy

The purpose of the Internet Safety Policy is to provide the school’s approach to Internet safety and security and provides overarching themes for how (St. Wendelin Catholic School, Fostoria)  will handle these issues  rather than presenting a guide for students on the day-to-day operations of the school network, computers, and proper usages (this can be found  in the Acceptable  Use Policy, which complements this document).  (St. Wendelin Catholic School, Fostoria) recognizes that students must act responsibly and will hold students accountable for their actions in attempting to uphold the Internet Safety Policy.

Successful operation of the building network facilities requires that use of Internet resources be consistent with the stated mission, goals, and objectives of (St. Wendelin Catholic School, Fostoria).

It is the policy of (St. Wendelin Catholic School, Fostoria) to:

1)   Prevent user access to and transmission of inappropriate material via the Internet, email, or other forms of direct electronic communications over its computer network;

2)    Prevent unauthorized access and other unlawful online activity;

3)    Prevent unauthorized online disclosure, use, or dissemination of personal identification information of minors; and

4)    Comply with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) [Pub. L. No. 106-554 and 47 USC 254(h)).
