Welcome to the West Shore School District Blog Site. As a school, ensuring a safe environment for our students is important. With the use of this blog site, the West Shore School District has its own blogging community. We can manage who is allowed into the community and determine the rules for membership and conduct.
The creation, editing, and posting of blog content must adhere to the West Shore School District Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) #815. Authors and contributors of blogs are expected to demonstrate exemplary digital citizenship practices at all times. Anyone who suspects misuse (inappropriate content, cyberbullying) is asked to report the concern to the West Shore School District’s Technology and Media Services Department.
