Computer Usage Policies

Anyone abusing this policy may have their printing privileges revoked.


In order to maintain a pleasant working atmosphere for all students, the following procedures have been established to provide the best use for the computer lab.

  General
  • No food or drinks are allowed at the computer stations.
  • Although the computer lab is an open lab please keep talking and noise level at a minimum.
  • Students are expected to leave their work area clean before vacating lab.
  • Any unused or scrap paper should be placed in the recycle crate located below the printers
  • No cell phones.
  • Children not allowed unless attended by an adult.

There are three scanners available for all students. Once you have finished your scanning please move to another computer so the scanner is available for other students.

When saving your work in the lab make sure you are saving it on your “Z” drive. Also be sure to make a backup of your files on your own media (flash drive or CD). The hard drives of the lab’s computers are cleaned out on a regular basis.

  • A lab assistant is present and available for help during lab hours.

  • Headphones are available for student to check-out in the lab.
