An Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is an important document which governs students’ use of the internet at school and covers a wide range of issues surrounding the rights, responsibilities and privileges – as well as sanctions – connected with computer use. Each school generally has a unique policy document, which is drawn up by teachers in conjunction with management and includes consultation with other stakeholders like students and parents.
