Needham'sÂ Responsible Use of Digital Resources PolicyÂ or RUP, defines responsible use of technology resources for students while using the district's wide area network and on the internet. Each student and his/her parent or guardian are required to sign and submit an acknowledgement annually that they together have reviewed the Responsible Use of Digital Resources Policy and agree that the student will comply with its terms. Students 18 or over must sign the acknowledgment for themselves. All students are allowed to use
online resources when in-class assignments require access. The contract indicates the student is allowed to independently use online resources at school. The RUP and the district's content filtering device bring Needham into compliance with CIPA, the Children's Internet Protection Act, and makes the district eligible forÂ E-Ratediscounted services.
