Submission + - Protecting Student Technology and Privacy

Adam.Steinbaugh writes: "I'm the student body president of a small, liberal arts college in California. I'm working on a "Student Bill of Rights" and the administration has asked me to include a section on technology as well as the privacy of student records. While I used to be rather internet savvy, I must admit I've dropped off in attention in recent years. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to word a policy on protecting students' access to technology and their privacy online, or know of some good examples in use by other educational institutions?"
