Petitioning our administration & IT department to unblock WhatsApp for students at ACS.
Although we understand why ACS administration and our IT department have blocked certain websites and social media applications (i.e. Putlocker, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.), we believe blocking WhatsApp complicates communication with our parents and our transportation (driver, bus, cab). Moreover, a majority of us have school-related group chats that discuss upcoming events or news, like a sports team discussing a game or a Chemistry group chat updating you on a test or any homework. Some may have 3G, but other’s don’t, and when we don’t have any credit to call or contact our parents, WhatsApp is somewhat necessary. If you agree that WhatsApp should be unblocked, sign the petition for support.
Once we have enough signatures, we'll be linking this petition to our headmaster, our Dean of Students, and the head of our IT department.
