The Snohomish School District’s Student User Internet Access Release Form that you and a parent or guardian signed contains most of the rules that apply to the computer lab.  In addition, specific to the Computer Labs located in the Business and Technology Department are the following rules:


Food and Drink

Eating or drinking is not allowed in the lab at all.  Food in or out of a container is not allowed in the lab – and must be stored out of sight in a book bag or the equivalent. The exception is water in a sealed container – such as a bottle.


Book Bags

Book bags are not allowed at the computer stations.  Each room has a designated area where you can leave your bags.  Bags represent a safety hazard for both students and the teacher, and must be left in their designated spot.


Workstation Maintenance

You share your workstation with five other students everyday. In order to ensure that each student is able to easily follow along with instructions, all machines must remain the same. Do not make any alterations to the background, desktop, wallpaper, shortcuts or programs in any way.  Inform the teacher immediately if your machine has been altered.


Malicious Acts

Intentional malicious actions to bypass the Snohomish School District’s Network policies will result in immediate disciplinary action, up to and including suspensions, and a revocation of computer privileges. Altering screen orientation, using a login that is not your own, and improper use of shared network drives are examples of acts considered malicious.


The use of proxy servers is a deliberate attempt to bypass both the agreement you and a parent or guardian signed, as well as the Children’s Internet Protection Act, and you may lose computer privileges as part of the consequences.


Cell phone/MP3 Player Usage

To help student learning, our department is not allowing cell phones or mp3 players out during class time.  This will help students stay focused on assignments and improve their learning and understanding of concepts taught in class.


Music and Copyright Law

Check with your teacher in regards to their class rules for listening to music through the computer. It is illegal to use the machines for copying music (ripping and burning). Observe all copyright laws in regards to music and image files.



A chair that is well-designed and appropriately adjusted is an essential element of a safe and productive computer workstation. Each computer lab has been equipped with chairs to promote safe computing. Damaging the chairs through misuse will result in immediate disciplinary action.



No files should be downloaded without teacher permission. This includes but is NOT LIMITED TO .bat, .cmd, .exe, .swf files.


Return this sheet, signed, to your teacher.

I have read the rules and requirements for computer lab usage above, I agree to follow/that my student, will follow these rules, and any departure from the rules will result in disciplinary action which may include revocation of computer use privileges.  I have also read and agree to abide with all the material in the syllabus.
