Technology Safety Information for Families
Renton School District is committed to the safety of our students. To help protect students while online, the district Chromebooks are filtered and monitored, both at school and off campus.
- Filtering: The filtering is consistent with federal regulations established by the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA). Learn more about our blocking and filtering policies and practices on the Internet Filtering webpage.
- Monitoring: The district uses GoGuardian for monitoring on student devices. This program provides information regarding student activity online that may indicate unsafe behaviors.
- In addition, families have access to the GoGuardian Parent mobile app, which gives parents/guardians information about their children’s online activity and allows them to set additional controls during out-of-school hours. Learn more about GoGuardian Parent in the panel below.
The district begins educating students about digital citizenship as early as Kindergarten and provides resources to help families support their students in safe online practice. Access these resources by visiting our Digital Citizenship and Responsible Use webpage.
