Summary:
Education; school-based access to information infrastructure. Requires public elementary and secondary schools enabling students to access the Internet, Usenet, the World Wide Web or other components of the information infrastructure via computers or computer connections furnished by such schools, to ensure that all World Wide Web pages, Gopher pages or similar pages containing student names and other identifying information about students contain a warning that information contained on such pages concerns juveniles, and that all persons accessing such information are subject to the Virginia Criminal Code. The bill also requires such schools to employ content-filtering software or technology to inhibit student access to Internet sites or files with sexually explicit content or having content otherwise inconsistent with the schools' educational missions.
