Help For Parents In Monitoring Your Student's Digital Access

As the fourth quarter begins, we can look back at several successful moments this year.  One that comes to mind is the implementation of Chromebooks to the all 7-12 Students. Teachers and students alike have learned many new things when it comes to technology constantly at our fingertips.  It is our mission here at Freeman to “Serve the students of today for their lives tomorrow.” By integrating technology into our everyday learning experiences, we are helping prepare our students for the ever changing and emerging digital world.


As part of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requirements, Freeman has in place a filtering system that protects our students from inappropriate websites and content, both at school and outside of the building (i.e. - at home).  This filter is designed to block suspicious content and prevent students from using our network and devices in a negative manner.  By CIPA rules, we are required to filter three main categories: weapons, drugs (and alcohol), and adult rated content.  Along with our filter, we are moving towards technology that will allow our staff to have access to view all device’s screens to make sure the students are using their technology appropriately.


Students outside of school hours are not limited to how much time they spend on any of the unblocked sites.  If you are having issues with your child, or are concerned with the device and the access it has, here are a few helpful hints for you to consider.


  • Having a central “work station” where the student works on homework in a location where you can monitor their use.

  • Charging or storing their device in a visible designated area in your home.

  • Have students demonstrate activities that they are working on in class.


The staff at Freeman is here to help in any way we can.  If you have questions regarding how Chromebooks are used by your student, please feel free to contact the school.  Until then, if you aren’t sure as to where to begin to understand technology appropriateness, please feel free to check out the following link:  https://www.commonsensemedia.org/screen-time
