Using the Internet Appropriately

Lexington County School District One has made (and continues to make) a significant investment in bringing the power of the internet to every student in the district.

Most computers in classrooms, labs or work spaces are connected to the internet. We want to ensure that students and staff use our internet resources efficiently and appropriately.

The district provides students, staff and any other users access to the district’s technologies. However, this use is a privilege and is not intended to be a public forum.

The district cooperates fully with local, state and federal authorities in any investigation concerning or related to any illegal activities or activities not in compliance with district policy.

Every user must read the district’s Technology Resources Policy and sign an Internet Use Agreement form each school year before they will be allowed to use the district’s system. This form is kept at the school or other office.


Web Filtering

As a final line of defense against inappropriate material reaching students via the internet, the district filters web access by all students and staff.

This filter blocks access to web pages that are on a list of objectionable or inappropriate sites.

Individuals who try to access such a site will get an error message, but the request will be logged by time and by the computer from which the request was made. This information may be used to track down repeated requests for inappropriate material, if a pattern of inappropriate use is evident.

Our filter does not look at email messages or at files that are downloaded directly to a computer. Students could still receive (or send) inappropriate email messages or attachments to email. 

Additionally, we are not able to filter the content of internet search results. If a student conducts an internet search, they may, in some cases, find that the returned results contain inappropriate language or references. They will not be able to access the actual web pages, however.

In general, the district wants to allow the broadest amount of access to the internet consistent with what is appropriate for an educational system. Students have a legitimate interest in finding out about our society and our world, and an overzealous blocking system can prevent that in some cases.

For example, a student may be researching drug abuse. The district hopes to provide as much access as possible to relevant sites for that student, while at the same time blocking access to sites that promote recreational drug use. Similarly, students doing research on human reproduction should not be denied access to factual material, but the district still needs to block access to pornographic sites that may be returned as a result of an internet search.
