Student Internet Access Policy Change for 2015-16
Dear Parents and Guardians,†
The Widefield School District desires for your student to have an information rich education. We believe this requires all students to have access to the Internet at school. Our board policy regarding the Internet has changed to reflect this philosophy. Under the new Board Policy JS-Student Use of Internet Electronic Communication, we no longer require parent permission before we will let your student access the Internet at school on a school owned device. †Instead, we expect that students will use the Internet unless you as the parent/gaurdian explicitly and annually submit the Annual Internet Opt-Out Form (See Board Policy JS-E) and return it to your studentís school.†

Questions regarding this policy may be directed to me, Keith Mann, at†email@example.com†or by calling my office at (719) 391-3023.†
