By the time I have my students use e-mail from the classroom they have
signed an AUP (Acceptable Use Policy) and clearly understand the
consequences of not abiding by this policy. I have had very few
problems after the limits have been clearly set. You should check with
your district office or support staff to see if anything is already in
place in your district. The potential problems are real, but typically
it only takes one person abusing it, (and receiving the consequences you
have laid out), before everyone abides by the ground rules you have
set. I suppose it is like any other issue that arises in your
classroom. Have fun with your project!
