Online Student Safety

 
How does the District keep my child safe online?
 
The web filtering implemented by SBOE on Chromebooks is consistent with both Federal regulations (CIPA), and current community standards concerning sites considered unsafe to visit.

 

The District uses two tools for filtering web access both in the schools and outside: Iprism and Lightspeed  Relay. 

 

All computers/devices on the district’s network are subject to the web filter. As Chromebooks travel home with students, there is programming on them that forces them to utilize the district’s filter when not on the district’s network (i.e. at home, Starbucks). 

 

The web filtering categories currently blocked include the following:

  • Non-educational games
  • Social media
  • Guns and weapons
  • Adult content
  • Pornography
  • Violence and Hate
  • Gambling
  • Terrorism/Radicalization
