Computer Acceptable Use Policy

This form must be signed by a parent or guardian before the student can use a computer. The form will be kept on file for the current semester and is intended to be used for each course requiring computer access even though not all the items below are relevant for every course.

Issues & Responsibilities: The Internet contains a wealth of information as well as material that is objectionable from many points of view. Please note that the University's computer labs are unfiltered. Instructors will closely monitor student use. Each student having Internet access will participate in a discussion with his or her instructor regarding acceptable behavior and use of the network. Where relevant to the course, students will discuss with their instructor potential dangers, threats, and consequences that can arise with the use of social media sites. Internet access is to be used only for teacher directed activities. If a student is in violations, his or her Internet access will be terminated and future access could be denied.

If relevant to the course(s) in which I am a participant, I agree to the following:
  • I will visit websites only as relevant to the course(s) in which I am participating.
  • My course work may be published to a public blog. I understand that editorial access to the blog is instructor-controlled, but that the content can be viewed by public (including my family and friends!). The University is under no obligation to maintain the blog after the conclusion of the course(s).
  • I may use an existing or create a new email account for purposes of registering for cloud-based editing software and/or accessing social media sites, including but not limited to Twitter, Facebook, and blogs.
  • I may use or create social media accounts, including but not limited to Twitter, Facebook, and blogs.
  • I may create, use and control an online portfolio of the work I create during the course(s).
I agree to the computer use policy and provisions as outlined above. I understand and agree to follow instructions for acceptable use of the Internet. I understand that any violation will result in the loss of Internet access. I agree to report any misuse of Internet resources to my instructor.

I have explained the policy to my minor child and have discussed with him/her the potential risks of participation.

Parent or Guardian: As the parent/guardian of the student-user named above, I have read the above statement and I hereby give my permission for my child to access the Internet and agree to the computer use policy and provisions as outlined above.

Additional Participant Information

Please use this form to share any information that can help Youth Education provide the best experience for child(s).

Helpful information to include:
  • Physical health or medical details
  • Mental or emotional health details
  • Behavioral details
  • Individual Education Plan details
  • Any other information you’d like to provide
Why do we ask for this information?

When you send your child to camp, you entrust us with their care. We take this responsibility seriously, but we are only as good as the information that we are given. Therefore, we ask that you work with us to provide detailed and accurate information so we can better prepare our team to create a positive and rewarding experience for your child.

When we don't know about a particular child's needs, we may not be able to respond to their behavior properly. The better prepared we are before camp, the better we can help your child be successful once they are here.

Note: If your student requires special accommodations, please contact the Youth Education office at 801-581-6984 well in advance. To get a better idea of what accommodations are available, please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity at 801-581-8365.
