Do you know if school personnel have the legal right to access an
unprotected parent/student personal account on a 1-1 school device, no
matter what an AUP states about inappropriate use?

A student streamed an inappropriate film via Netflix on their 1-1
computer while at school.

Tech support confirmed it by going to the unprotected Netflix account
(remembered password).

Parent is upset that tech support accessed her account (that child was using).
