Student Protection with the Chromebook roll out.

Uinta County School District #1 (UCSD #1) has chosen and approved Chromebooks for our 1:1 access model with our 4-12 graders. Chromebooks are designed to be used while connected to the Internet. Rather than use traditional software that resides on the device itself, Chromebooks utilize the web-based Google Chrome Operating System to quickly boot upon startup and for overall functionality, in  addition to utilizing cloud computing via the Google Apps for Education Suite. By using the cloud it allows for students to collaborate on assignments.

With this roll out one question that has risen to the top is how are students being protected from accessing inappropriate content?

UCSD #1 has incorporated safeguards through the use of Lightspeed which is the district content filter.   This complies with the filtering requirements mandated by the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).  Parents can also refer to OnGuard Online.gov to find resources to learn more about keeping their kids safe online. OnGuardOnline.gov is the federal government’s website to help you be safe, secure, and responsible online.

Parents also can access the  Net Cetera: Chatting with Kids About Being Online and HeadsUp! Stop, Think, Connect websites. Both of these sites are great resources for parents to help their children as they are on the web at home on a personal or school issued device.
