Internet Safety - Education

  • Illinois Public Act 095-0869 requires that beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, every school district in Illinois must incorporate into the school curriculum a component on Internet safety to be taught at least once each school year to students in grade 3 and above.

    In addition to authentic integration during classroom instruction, we have created the “5-Minute Film Festival” for advisory.

    5-Minute Festival Films are

    • The Pressure to Stay Connected
    • Friendships and Social Media
    • Hate Speech Online
    • 13 Ways to Protect your Data
    • Choose Your News

    These films will discuss hot topics with the intention of reminding students that we

    • find balance in our digital lives 
    • know the power of words and actions
    • are kind and courageous
    • take control to protect interests
    • can find reliable sources

Internet Safety - Filtering

  • Securly Web Filter And Aware Wellness Monitoring

    Securly Web Filter and AWARE protect our students and staff in a number of ways:

    • Web filtering: Securly Web Filter blocks access to websites that are known to contain malware, phishing scams, or other dangerous content. This helps to protect students and staff from accidentally exposing their personal information to malicious actors.

    • Content filtering: Securly Web Filter can also be used to filter specific types of content, such as social media, gambling, or pornography. This can help to prevent students and staff from sharing their personal information on websites that they should not be using.

    • Keyword monitoring: Securly Web Filter and AWARE can also be used to monitor for specific keywords in student and staff web traffic. 

    • Data encryption: Securly encrypts all student and staff data at rest and in transit. This means that even if someone were to gain unauthorized access to Securly's systems, they would not be able to read the data.

    • Access control: Securly strictly limits access to student and staff data. Only authorized personnel have access to this data, and all access is logged and audited.

    Overall, Securly Web Filter and AWARE provide a set of tools and services to protect student and staff personal information. By using Securly, schools and districts can help to keep their students and staff safe online.
