In our Middle School (5-8) we DO have all students sign every year. Access Contracts are now issued as part of a reorientation/review of rules & policies done at the beginning of the year. Usernames are disabled until students (and parents) have signed off. I think this process is an important reminder to students that the policies matter, and might force some review on the part of parents as well. It is only recently (2-3 years) that we have been doing this introduction consistently with all of our students. We are now at the point where we might be able to back off a little with our oldest students, assuming that after four years they might begin to "get it." Maybe. We also completed some updates and revisions and hopefully the policies with be stable for the next couple of years, although we have not yet addressed functional email accounts.
