Digital Safety

We prioritize the safety and well-being of our students, not only in the physical realm but also in the ever-evolving digital space. With the increasing reliance on technology for education, we understand the importance of a secure and safe digital environment for our students. This page outlines our digital safety measures and provides recommendations for parents and guardians to help foster digital safety at home.

Our Digital Safety Measures

We are committed to providing a digital learning environment that is secure, respectful, and conducive to the highest level of learning.

GoGuardian Teacher: We use GoGuardian Teacher, a classroom management software that provides real-time insights into students' online activities. It allows teachers to view students' screens during class, control access to specific websites or apps, and guide students' digital learning effectively and safely.

Content Filtering: To protect our students from inappropriate online content, we implement a multi-layered content filtering systems designed specifically for schools. These AI-based systems not only block inappropriate content but also alert district administrators to potential risks, such as cyberbullying or self-harm, by analyzing students' online activities.

Student Data Privacy: We follow strict guidelines for student data privacy. All third-party educational platforms are carefully vetted for compliance with federal and state student data privacy laws.

Digital Citizenship Education: We integrate digital citizenship education into our curriculum, teaching students about appropriate online behavior, the importance of protecting personal information, and how to interact positively and safely on digital platforms.

Recommendations for Parents and Guardians

While we strive to ensure digital safety at school, it's equally important for students to follow safe digital practices at home. Here are some recommendations:

Open Communication: Talk openly with your children about their online activities. Show interest in what they're doing and encourage them to share both positive and negative online experiences.

Educate: Teach your children about the importance of not sharing personal information online, recognizing and avoiding online scams, and behaving respectfully and responsibly online.

Set Boundaries: Establish rules for technology use at home. This could include limiting screen time, designating tech-free zones or times, and setting guidelines for appropriate online behavior.

Use Parental Controls: Consider using parental controls on your home internet and your child's devices. These can help limit access to inappropriate content and manage screen time.
