Securly has been the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) approved content filter used on all of Leyden's student-assigned Chromebooks since 2015. This content filter works in school, at home, and wherever students use their Chromebooks. In fact, this content filter is actually connected to our students' accounts, so it will even work when students log into their school-issued Chrome profiles on any computer.
Securly also offers a convenient parent portal for parents and guardians to review their student's Internet activity. Leyden has chosen to allow parents and guardians to only see their student's at-home activity. Weekly email reports that include a snapshot of our students' Internet activity are sent on Mondays to all parents and guardians that have been loaded into the system. Parents and guardians can then click the "Visit your portal" link in the weekly emails to see more detailed information. There is even a Securly Home mobile app that parents and guardians can use (Android link here and iOS link here). Be sure to check out the video below for more information.
