Internet Safety, Filtering, and Digital Citizenship

  • Berlin Public Schools is a G Suite for Education District, meaning our students and staff use Google's online, collaborative, real-time productivity suite. Here is Google's Privacy Policy

    Filtering

    The filtering software we use is called GoGuardian. GoGuardian is a software designed specifically to help educators ensure students’ safety when using the Chromebooks. Click here for more detailed information about GoGuardian.

    Internet Safety

    Berlin Public Schools has safeguards in place to keep your child safe. We have filters and virus protection in effect on ALL Berlin Public School technology 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The Chromebooks have a built in CIPA (Children’s Internet Protection Act) filter called GoGuardian. Therefore, protection is in place at home, school, or any other location. No filtering system is perfect, but we can monitor closely and block inappropriate content. However, thousands of new sites are created everyday and our filter may not catch all of them. If your child comes across inappropriate content have them report it to the building principal so the site can be blocked. Teachers also incorporate Internet Safety into their classes. For more information about Berlin Public School's Internet safety guidlines, please see our Internet Safety Best Practices document.
