Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)

For Electronic Media and Online Resources

Mooltripakdee International School (MIS) recognizes the value of computer and other electronic resources to improve student learning and enhance the administration and operation of its schools. To this end, we encourage the responsible use of computers; computer networks, including the Internet; and other electronic resources in support of our educational goals.

Because the Internet is an unregulated, worldwide vehicle for communication, information available to staff and students is impossible to control. Therefore, we have adopted this policy governing the voluntary use of electronic resources and the Internet in order to provide guidance to
individuals and groups obtaining access to these resources when on the school premises.

To this end, MIS retains the following rights and recognises the following obligations:

  • To log network use and to monitor fileserver space utilization by users, and assume no responsibility or liability for files deleted due to violation of fileserver space allotments.
  • To remove a user account on the network.
  • To monitor the use of online activities. This may include real-time monitoring of network activity and/or maintaining a log of Internet activity for later review.
  • To provide internal and external controls as appropriate and feasible.Such controls shall include the right to determine who will have access to MIS-owned equipment and, specifically, to exclude those who do not abide by our acceptable use policy or other policies governing the use of school facilities, equipment, and materials. We reserve the right to restrict online destinations through software or other means.
  • To provide guidelines and make reasonable efforts to train staff and students in acceptable use and policies governing online communications.


It is the policy of MIS to maintain an environment that promotes ethical and responsible conduct in all online network activities by staff and students. It shall be a violation of this policy for any employee, student, or other individual to engage in any activity that does not conform to the established purpose and general rules and policies of the network. Within this general policy, MIs recognizes its legal and ethical obligation to protect the well-being of students in its charge.


  • Staff members who supervise students, control electronic equipment or otherwise have occasion to observe student use of said equipment online shall make reasonable efforts to monitor the use of this equipment to assure that it conforms to the terms of the Acceptable Use Policy.
  • Staff should make reasonable efforts to become familiar with the Internet and its use so that effective monitoring, instruction and assistance may be achieved.


  • Use of the electronic media provided by MIS is a privilege that offers a wealth of information and resources for research. Where it is available, this resource is offered to staff, students, and other stakeholders at no cost. In order to maintain that privilege, users agree to learn and comply with all of the provisions of this policy.


  • All use of the Internet must be in support of educational and research objectives consistent with the mission and objectives of MIS.
