Technology for Student Learning

Filtering and Monitoring

In order to protect students while online, the district Chromebooks are filtered and monitored, both at school and off campus. The filtering is consistent with federal regulations (CIPA) and the monitoring, which uses the program GoGuardian, provides information regarding student activity online that may indicate unsafe behaviors. Families may receive alerts from our monitoring software if their student has searched for materials which may indicate a self-harm concern. These alerts are meant to provide a family the resources to begin a conversation to address any potential health concerns.

In addition, we have provided families access to GoGuardian Parent, a mobile app to help keep parents/guardians aware of their children's activity on school-issued devices and provide additional controls during out-of-school hours. You can find more information about this app on the Technology Safety Information for Families webpage under "GoGuardian Parent App".
