Virtual Crossing Guard
Are your mornings missing some pizzazz? Are you feeling blue because you can no longer walk to school? If so, have we got the thing for you!
Every school day morning from 7:55 to 8:30 a.m. students can have a quick drop-in virtual crosswalk crossing with Ms. Stephens. The Zoom link is available from any Bacich teacher or admin.
Many of you have been inquiring about the filters on our district devices and google platform. Here are the answers to your questions, straight from our IT director, Andrew Korff.
"The Kentfield School District employs two layers of filtering for all student internet access, both on campus and when using school-owned devices at home. The first filtering layer is provided by a service called Cisco Umbrella, which is provided to all districts by the Marin County Office of Education. This filter is automatically applied to all school-owned iPads or Chromebooks, and blocks websites based on filtering rules we have established. The second filtering layer is specific to Google. Our DNS server is configured to force all Google searches to use Google's "SafeSearch" setting, which filters out explicit content. This applies to all web searches as well as all image searches originating from our network, and also cannot be disabled. YouTube access for students is also configured to use "Restricted Mode", which similarly filters out mature or inappropriate content. Our filtering rules through Cisco Umbrella are often more stringent than Google's SafeSearch, and at times this can result in the name of a blocked website appearing in Google's search results. If a student were to click on the search result, however, they would be blocked from visiting the website itself."
