How Does Internet Filtering Work?

posted Sep 15, 2015, 1:33 PM by Michael Martz
Student Chromebooks will be filtered with our school's Lightspeed filtering system both at school and when students are at home.  The intention of the Chromebook is for learning/academic purposes.  Social media and streaming media is blocked.  This means no access to Facebook, YouTube, Pandora, etc...  

If you use another computer (non-school) and you log into Chrome with your account, you will be filtered the same as if you were on a district computer.  Filtering works based on your district assigned account name.  If you don't want to be filtered on your personal computer, sign out of your district account in Chrome.  You can not sign out of your district account on Chromebooks.
