With web filtering, cyberbullying monitoring, and self-harm alerts, Securly provides districts the eyes and the ears they need to maintain safety at all times, across different schools, and different devices. Technology evolves rapidly, so schools need solutions that meet the dangers kids face today, right now.
Securly is a DNS based web filter that will allow a more granular control by grade level of the web content our students are accessing. It will apply to any device connected to our PPS networks either by hard wire or WiFi. The only changes staff and students should see are the following:
- Users not using chromebooks may be asked to authenticate with their PPS Google Account periodically so the system can properly identify what permissions they have.
- The block screen will be displayed as Securly and not Barracuda.
- All devices connecting to PPS networks must either have the Securly certificate installed as described below, or they must connect to the PPS Guest network instead which is filtered at the elementary school level.
