We just did a "Student Technology Use Agreement" for (primarily middle
students at Walden (a preK-8 school).
We purposely kept it "short & sweet". You might pull some items
from it -
"I will access only resources that I have permission to
"I will follow federal & state laws.", "I will treat others with

Support wise, I would think the EULA is less important than the way in
which signon is implemented ... remember, who will be using this ...
school board members, parents ... and students :) ... maybe just naming
the network something like "FREE, SLOW, CENSORED" would be enough :)
Here's where you can find some ...
- McDonald's has one, via "AT&T". Setup requites using a browser,
is slow, and sometimes fails, even thought all it takes is a "check
this box" ... see below.
- Bruggler's bagels has one, via their in house network. Not as slow as
ATT, same "click" this little box, ... see below
- Fletcher Free Library has one, via a 3rd party. The used to have a
sign in, now have an option "skip" the signin. Then goes to a popup
menu, which reports an error because my browsers have blocked popups !
The most interesting thing about their EULA is that they limit you to
900 Mbyte download in 12 hours ... Not a bad idea, really.

ALL of these are painful and difficult to use on an iPhone, an Android,
etc ... they are framed for a browser that takes a full 15" screen, and
the check off boxes are so tiny to be non existent ... especial when
presented in lovely designer colors ...

- Burlington Telecom in City Hall. WOW. I went there with my iPhone,
mainly to check the weather, and post a tweet, and the wifi just
worked. It just worked. It worked so well it was scarey :)

- Burlington International Airport. The last time I went there, they
had a nice hybrid system. You login with "any" (including fake) email
address, no password, and they then take you to an airport page
displaying the current arrivials, departures, etc ... VERY useful. This
might be a good model (if there were support for it) for a school
network ... maybe the student newspaper, pep team, etc ? could be
