Digital Safety

Digital safety is of the utmost importance. Intentional, frequent discussions with your student of any age, are necessary and allow you to be proactive in protecting your student and further educating him/her. Experts warn that students are most vulnerable to online dangers while at home. Please note the following suggestions as they might be of assistance in further educating your student about appropriate use of technology including the iPad and home Internet use.

Beyond school, parents must take responsibility for their student’s use of technology and the Internet in alignment Policy 524—Technology Acceptable Use Policy by students and the school student handbooks. While the district has purchased filtering software that will be enforced on the school’s network, filtering does not take the place of quality supervision. As a parent, you are responsible for monitoring your student’s use of district-provided educational technology. This includes Internet use at home or any other remote location outside of school. Experts strongly suggest installing software to filter and block inappropriate content on your home wireless network. Some possible filters include OpenDNS, SafeEyes, and NetNanny.
