Internet Usage warrants the availability of material that may not be considered to be of appropriate educational value.On a global network, it is impossible to restrict access to controversial materials.It is the responsibility of the student, parent, teacher, and administrator to ensure that access to telecommunications networks and computers provided by the educational system is not abused.


Computer usage is a privilege at Wheeling Park High School.Students are expected to use computers in a proper manner.Wheeling Park High School reserves the right to review any materials in a studentís account or home directory, as it deems necessary.


Penalties for MISUSE of the computer or the Internet will be applied according to the disciplinary procedures as set forth in the student handbook.This could include loss of computer privileges for a period of up to one year and restitution for any damage caused the computer and/or network, as well as possible prosecution.
