The Lower Merion School District takes pride in ensuring that our students have access to information and resources available on the Internet. Policy No.134, “District Provided Technology Resources: Student Use, Rights, and Responsibilities” can be found in its entirety on the district website. This policy represents LMSD’s computer network and student internet user agreement. Any student who violates the provisions of this policy may have their LMSD network privileges suspended or revoked and school disciplinary action and/or legal action may be pursued. Students access the Internet under the direction and supervision of teachers. Students can also access LMSD resources from home using their student account.
