The District has implemented protection measures to help guard against inappropriate or obscene material by adults and minors within the District. Internet access within the District is “filtered” by a CIPPA compliant appliance, as mandated by State and Federal Laws. This appliance is popular in schools and does a very good job, but it is not infallible. The District also has an “Acceptable Use Policy” for network access. This policy states that Students and Adults may NOT access inappropriate material utilizing District equipment. This policy may be accessed with the documents link on the left side of this page, then click on the Information Technology Documents folder.
