Our Path Forward

    • White Glove Service - to assist in setup and distribution

    • Content Filtering and Classroom Management through LightSpeed

  • 2nd - 8th grade students take devices home

Security & Content filtering

Your students online safety and security are important to us.  We have implemented software and other methods to ensure your students are protected at all times while they are using their device.  We will also be enabling a parent portal for you to opt in for weekly reports on web usage.

  • We will use LightSpeed Device Detective to disable and GeoLocate lost or stolen devices.

  • LightSpeed Relay will provide web-based content filtering both on-campus and off.

  • Parents can receive weekly reports of web usage.

  • Email notifications are sent to administrators for search terms involving self-harm, bullying, violence, or any other terms via a customizable list.


Managing devices in the Classroom

  • We will use “LightSpeed Classroom” to give staff control over devices in their rooms.

  • View student screens and record them, display activity history, communicate with individuals, monitor progress on assignments, limit web browsing to specific sites to ensure students stay on task.

  • Staff can lock devices to get eyes upfront, or send links for all devices to view at once.
