Central Columbia School District has developed student iPad Academic Focus Profiles, which are (normally) active between 2:45 PM and 7:00 AM (after regular school hours, grades 4 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. Parents have three Academic Focus Profiles that can be selected by submitting the web form on this page.
