EIS Computer Use Policy
The Escuela Internacional
Sampedrana is highly committed to providing students with a quality educational
experience in all areas of the curriculum, including information technology.
Computers and networks can provide access to resources on and off campus,
as well as the ability to communicate with other users worldwide. Such
open access is a privilege, and requires that individual users act responsibly.
Our investment in computer software and equipment is substantial. In order
to protect this investment and provide for the best education possible,
all students using computers agree to the following:
Although EIS is a provider of a means to access
the vast and growing amount of information available through electronic
information resources, it is not a regulator of the content of that information
and takes no responsibility for the content of information.

the computer labs at any time.
