With the changing digital landscape and its impact on learning, it’s important to regularly revisit your district’s acceptable use policy (AUP) to ensure it is current and not leaving your students or your district vulnerable.
What your students access on school-issued devices can have serious consequences. Just one student accessing one unapproved app can leave your school at greater risk of a successful cyberattack. An AUP can help reduce those risks—but only if it’s up to date.
While it is of course impossible to eliminate risk entirely from your edtech use, it is possible to greatly mitigate it by making sure everyone uses their devices responsibly. In this free guide, we examine the AUP elements you need to maintain and optimize to keep your district secure and your students safe while they learn and use the internet.
