Computer Labs and Internet Policy:
Computer users and their parents/guardians should be aware that Alameda High School does not have any control over the information on the Internet. While Alameda High School's intent is to make Internet access available to aid in the collection of research materials and other educational uses, it is possible for the users to access other materials as well. Because control over the uses of the computer ultimately lies solely with the student, we strongly encourage parents and guardians to set and convey the standards that their children should follow while using computers. Parents and guardians should read the Acceptable Use Agreement; signing the signature page indicates that both parent and student understand and agree to the policies as outlined therein.
