SUBJECT

Web Filtering Changes for Juniors and Seniors

RATIONALE

Following the school board’s action on February 25, 2019, several web filtering modifications were enabled for our students who were enrolled in grades 11 and 12.

 

  1. Enabled restricted-mode access to Youtube.
  2. Enabled access to advertisements (assistive with the proper rendering of web content.)
  3. Enabled access to Auctions/Shopping sites.
  4. Enabled access to selected digital forums.
  5. Enabled access to selected radio and tv content.

 

-One parent elected to opt-out of the approved trial. 

-Students’ Internet usage was continuously monitored.

-No access violations were noted.

-No complaints were received.

 

In July, I will request the school board’s authorization to deploy the listed modifications to all 11th and 12th grade students for the 19-20 school year. 

 

-Parents will be offered an opportunity to opt-out. 

-Internet traffic will be monitored and usage reports will be generated.

-Access violations will be reported to the high school’s administrative team.
