Filtering & Monitoring of Technology at Camdenton Schools


Filtering 

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, the onsite filtering via network rules are 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 non 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 camdentonschools.org 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.
