Internet Safety and Security
Plum Borough School District wants to provide our students with the safest technology and web experience. We have installed content filtering and monitoring on our network and devices, and we'll work with you to keep your students safe at home on their devices as well. Please read on to learn more about our steps to keep your children safe.
Plum Borough School District Technology Policies
On District Devices and Network
Plum Borough School District uses Lightspeed Relay, a filtering and monitoring service that blocks access to inappropriate content and provides detailed reporting regarding our students' web searches and browsing activity on district-provided devices. For added protection, we also employ Bark for Schools, an intelligent monitoring system that scans our Google Suite (including but not limited to Classroom, Gmail, Docs, and Slides) and flags possible indicators of cyberbullying, suicidal ideation, sexual predation, and more.
All parents can receive reports regarding their child's activity on district devices with a Lightspeed Parent Portal. To sign up for these reports, please email [email protected] with your student's name and ID number, and we will automatically set you up to receive these reports.
We recognize that web safety concerns do not stop at the boundaries of our District, and we aim to provide our families with all the resources they need to keep students safe at home and on personal devices. Please review the resources listed below to help with internet safety at home.
