In an effort to increase student online safety and filtering consistency, Information Technology Services has begun deploying a remote content filtering system to all district-owned mLISD devices. This update will ensure students receive the same filtering policies off site as they do on LISD campuses/facilities.


The remote filter update will occur seamlessly when the student device is powered on and attached to the Leander ISD network. Once the filtering program is installed on a student’s machine, the device will be filtered off campus just as it is currently while on campus. The process may take a few weeks to fully deploy.

LISD has been piloting the filter at a high school campuses since October in an effort to partner with teachers and students to minimize disruption and ensure access to material needed for learning.

 

We are committed to ensuring our students are filtered in accordance with the Children’s Protection Act (CIPA) [PUB. L. No. 106-544 and 47 USC 2549h)].
