To: All Principals

Subject: State Policy SS-70-003 Warning Banners

Principals and Administrators,

To be in compliance with state policies we must have a "warning banner" posted at all locations where computer access may occur. I am sending this banner and the state policy (SS-70-003) via school mail. I am also attaching these documents to this email.

Below is a summary of the banner requirements:

Required on all access points (computers).

Banner warns user:

1. about what is considered the proper use of the system

2. that the system may be monitored to detect improper use and other illicit activity

3. that there is no expectation of privacy while using the system

4. of the penalties of noncompliance.

You can find this policy at the following web address: http://www.dis.arkansas.gov/Websites/dis/images/SS-70-003_warning_banner_standard.pdf
