Internet Filtering Information
Richmond Community Schools provides safe access to Internet and Web resources for our students, faculty, and staff. We comply with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). To achieve this goal, we use the Websense filtering solution block a variety of categories, including sexuality explicit material, adult material, illegal or questionable material, and risky security sites. Websense updates the list of blocked sites every night. We also manually add sites to the blocked list when students, staff, or faculty find sites that are of questionable quality.
As a parent, you have many online resources for sharing your concerns with others and getting advice. You don’t need to be a technical whiz to take advantage of these sites. Here are some you might want to add to your Favorites:
