Water What-ifs

Acceptable Use Policies

  The following are four examples of Acceptable Use Policies. These samples may be used as a guideline to write the policy for your school or district. It is the responsibility of the contact person for the use of the Water What-ifs project to have the signatures of the student and the parents or guardians on an "Acceptable Use Policy" before the students are permitted to use the Water Quality Forum.
