The Internet allows our students the ability to access a vast amount of information and resources online. Much of the information and resources available via the Internet has positive educational value, but definitely not all. Normangee ISD has special software and hardware in place that will restrict access to undesirable adult material and topics.
|It is not possible, however, to completely block all objectionable sites. As parents and teachers, we must teach students to be responsible consumers of information and responsible users of the district's technology equipment. The resources in this section will help you maximize the benefits of the Internet and related technologies for your child's education and minimize the risks that your child could encounter online.|
