The Board of Education policy regarding copyright is geared toward the teachers/system employees not the students.  However, and acceptable use policy does exist for students. This policy does address copyright issues, but not in great detail.  Perhaps we need to revisit our policy to be all encompassing– including students not just teachers in the copyright policy.

When publishing student work to the web, the work needs to have followed the acceptable use guidelines as well as have permission granted from all necessary parties before publishing to the Web.
