Internet Filtering

Send by email

The school does not filter Internet content. We clearly communicate our expectation that students must make responsible choices for appropriate computer use. Consequences for not doing so may include loss of computer privileges and suspension. We believe that close supervision of the facility is the best deterrent to inappropriate use, and have one or more adults present in the library throughout the school day. All recesses are supervised and computers are turned off when we leave. In addition, we have set up the computer screens in a way that makes it easier for children to make good choices. We configure Google with the strict filtering preference. However, we feel it is important that children know that it would be easy to bypass these guides, and that what is really protecting them from inappropriate use is their own thoughtful choices and common sense. We have had virtually no problems.
