Camdenton Schools Technology Department Empowering all Lakers

The Technology Department for Camdenton R-III school district manages and supports a wide variety of technology equipment, tools, and resources. Support is provided for early childhood programs, four elementary schools, an intermediate school, a middle school, a high school, an alternative school, a technical career center, an administration office as well as other buildings which house district departments and staff.

The Technology Department section within the Camdenton R-III school district's website is designed to provide information about the department, acceptable use policies, 1:1 device information (handbook and insurance plan), and important updates. 

  • Filtering & Monitoring of Technology at Camdenton Schools 

    Students utilizing Camdenton Schools accounts on Chromebooks (whether school or personal) will be filtered with GoGuardian. This DNS filtering is used in conjunction with onsite filtering to ensure our students are provided with secure online learning environments.

    What guardians need to know!

    • At home, filtering continues; however, onsite filtering via network rules is no longer implemented. For example, students cannot access Netflix while connected to the Camdenton R3 Schools networks. However, this may be accessible on home networks depending on home network configurations.
    • Students utilizing a Camdenton Schools account on Chromebook devices will not have filtering. Their filtering will be contingent upon the network configurations in which they are using. For example, if a student logs onto a guardian's Windows device, no filtering from Camdenton Schools will occur.   
    • If a student attempts to access material considered to be obscene, not only will the filtering program block the material, but an administrator will be notified of the attempt. 

    Classroom Management 
    Through the GoGuardian product, teachers have the ability to manage devices that their students are utilizing for class. Teachers have the following tools only during school hours and while the student is on campus: lock screen, set filters, chat, check history, etc.  

    What guardians need to know!

    • At home, the management tools are not available. Students MUST be on campus and working within our IP range for the management tools to function. These tools are also only available between 8:00 am and 3:30.    

    Email Monitoring

    Students in grades 7-12 have access to email through a school-provided email account. 

    7th-10th can email within the domain and a few vetted domains necessary for classwork. 11th-12th have access to email entities within and outside of our domain and selected platforms. Upperclassmen utilize email for many educational purposes, and restricting access inhibits them from many necessary tasks. 

    Our email platform monitors email for a select list of trigger words. This may include phrases about violence to self or others and explicit material. If a student uses one of these words, an administrator is notified.

    What guardians need to know!

    • Administrators will address these alerts in a reasonable amount of time during regular business hours. 
    • Students and families are able to access any of the following resources for help.​​​​​​
    • Emergency: 911
    • Suicide Crisis Line:  1-800-273-8255 (TALK) or text HOME to 741741

    We have recently chosen to use Infinite Campus as our student information system. Infinite Campus is a district-wide student information system designed to manage attendance, grades, schedules, assessments, and other information about the students in Camdenton R-III Schools. Infinite Campus will replace SIS K-12

    You will have access to the Campus Portal which is a confidential and secure website that allows parents/guardians to log in and view their child's progress in school.

    Families of returning students should check the email account they have on file with the school district for a Campus Portal email including directions for setting up the portal.

    Families of new students should report to the school to begin the new student enrollment process.

    As the year progresses, our district will release additional features of the Campus Portal. Watch the announcements page for these releases.

    Where can I access the portal?

    What if I didn't receive a portal activation email?

    • Go to the parent portal link above.
    • Click new user.
    • Call your child's school for your activation code. 

    What if some of my information is incorrect?

    You can request changes in demographic information within the parent portal. However, all changes have to be verified and approved by school staff.
