Accessing the Internet through school library computers is a crucial part of research and learning. While our AISD filters block out most inappropriate sites, teachers and librarians continually circulate and monitor students' Internet searches. Because we want to encourage students to use the Internet to further their education, we try to keep our rules to a minimum and for protection purposes: No games. No email. No violence. No music videos. No inappropriate sites, as determined by librarian, staff, administrators, or teachers.
