Central Columbia School District has developed student iPad Academic Focus Profiles, which are active between 2:45 PM and 7:00 AM (after regular school hours, grades 5 to 12). The Academic Focus Profiles are designed to help parents and guardians limit what their children can access on their student iPad via the Internet, from home. All academic access will function normally. Parents have three Academic Focus Profiles that can be selected by submitting the web form on this page.
'Academic Focus - Level One’ and 'Academic Focus - Level Two’ can be activated and deactivated on request by a parent/guardian. Academic Focus Profile - Level Three, needs to be coordinated with the Building Principal.
Academic Focus Profile, Level One - Submit Web Form -
This profile removes social media access from the student iPad. Student's will not be able to connect to social media sites (Facebook and others). Photo sharing sites (Instagram and others), Forums (questionable themes) and Facebook messaging will be blocked.
Academic Focus Profile, Level Two - Submit Web Form -
In addition to level 1, non-educational streaming video access is removed. Entertainment sites like Netflix, Hulu, and Vimeo, will not connect. Other video streaming sites like YouTube will also not function, but might conflict with academic access.
Academic Focus Profile, Level Three - Submit Web Form -
Parent/Guardians need to coordinate this level directly with the building Principal via email or telephone. In addition to level 1 and level 2 above, FaceTime is turned off. Apple Photo streaming and iPad Camera is turned off. All Public Web Email access is blocked 24/7. The student can only send and receive an email from Central Columbia teachers and staff.
This service is provided to all Central Columbia School District Parents and Guardians. It is not intended to replace the parent's involvement and monitoring of their child’s Internet access. We offer it as a tool that can be used to help your child focus on their academic assignments If you have any questions, please email Mr. John Monick, Director of Technology, Central Columbia School District at firstname.lastname@example.org.
