Students in grades 6-12 each have a Chromebook as part of an existing 1:1 program at the middle and high school levels. Students will receive their Chromebooks at the beginning of the school year.
Mobile devices issued in the fall of 2020 will support students blended learning, both in person and from a distance when not in school.
In choosing digital services for our students, specifically for those under the age of 13, we can only use services that are COPPA compliant. In addition, as a school district, we need to be CIPA compliant and restrict student access to inappropriate websites.
BSD Chromebooks accessed at home by elementary and middle level students with their BSD accounts will be utilizing GoGuardian, a monitoring and filtering software. K-2 iPads will be using Cisco Umbrella services for filtering of web site activity.
See these links for additional information about how the GoGuardian system uses data, and how it applies to students. Further questions are encouraged and can be sent to email@example.com.
If students and families are having difficulty with their district issued chromebook, please contact the BSD Help Desk at 802-864-8437 and leave a detailed voicemail and contact information so that a representative can assist you. Not sure if you should call Tech Support? See our Support (Help!) link for other options depending on your question(s).
