Student Access and Filters

  • District filters are compliant with the Children Internet Protection Act, which is a federal protection that addresses concerns about children’s online access to obscene or harmful content. As technology evolves, the district’s iTech team continues to monitor appropriate filters ensure our protections exceed the federal requirements. Below is a list of common websites and programs and the standard filters at various grade levels.
