Student safety, both in school and at home, is our priority, and the District Technology Department has taken all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our students. We follow the Federal Communications Commission’s Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) laws regarding internet safety. Under CIPA, schools are required to filter or block internet access to obscene content, pornography, and other sites harmful to minors.
Houston ISD filters internet access from district-owned devices through firewalls and a filtering system. This system maintains the same filtering for the devices whether they are used in district or in a location outside the district such as at a student’s home.
Students will be using their student account to access learning resources daily. It is important to keep this password confidential.
