New Hartford has been a ground breaking school district for many years in the area of technology and the use on online services.
With that being the case it is imperative that we protect our students from the dangers on the Internet and the World Wide Web.
We take serious precautions in protecting students. Some of the systems we use in accomplishing this task are:
- Web Filtering System - Light Speed (http://www.lightspeedsystems.com/products/web-filter/)
- Virus and Malware Protection: Symantec Endpoint Protection and Microsoft Security Essentials
- COPPA and FERPA compliant online software as a service companies
We are also one of the first schools to use Google Apps For Education (GAFE).
Our E-mail and Google Docs are fully protected under the Google Apps for Education agreement.
Students are protected by only having the ability to email within our schools domain. They can not send or receive emails from outside entities unless authorized by the Information Technology Department.
If you would like to to learn more about Google Apps for Education and the security of your students information online please visit their website at: Google For Education
