Content filters for minors may NOT be disabled or turned off without obtaining prior permission from the person in charge at the school or library.

No unauthorized personal identifying information regarding minors may be disclosed, used, or disseminated without proper authorization by the person in charge at the school or library.

Minors' use of email, chat rooms, social networks, applications, and other forms of direct electronic communication on electronic devices at the school or library must be monitored.
