Safety

  • Web Filtering


    It is the district's top priority to maintain your child’s safety with their mobile Chromebook. 

     

    • Following the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), the Marana Unified School District will be maintaining filtering technologies for the Chromebook to mitigate student access to inappropriate web content. 

    • The Marana Unified School District cannot guarantee that access to all inappropriate sites will be blocked. It is the responsibility of the student to use the device, network, and the Internet appropriately.

    • Students are required to notify a teacher or administrator if they access information or messages that are inappropriate, dangerous, threatening, or make them feel uncomfortable.

    • Parents accept full responsibility for supervising their child’s use of the Chromebook when not in a school setting.

    • MUSD currently partners with a company, Securly, which provides a parent portal for the student assigned devices (those students who take their Chromebooks back and forth from home to school).  This parent portal allows parent(s)/guardian(s) the option of further defining their child’s online experience away from school.  For more information about the Securly parent portal, please contact your child’s school.

     

    Student Safety Management Services

     

    • Content in all student Google assigned email messages and information found in Google Drive is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  When an alert is triggered, the school administrators receive a notification.  School administrators can support any student needs that surface and encourage good decision making.

     

    Focused Browsing

     

    • Focused browsing is a tool provided for teachers to use in the classroom to support student engagement and classroom management.  Teachers have the option of monitoring the activities of each student, redirecting their browsers to links that are relevant to that day’s instruction, and locking devices when they are not in use.
