The digital learning environment at Kaneland has been utilizing safety controls provided by Gaggle for several years. Currently, Kaneland D302 uses Gaggle in the filtering of inappropriate content in student email accounts.
Gaggle has extended filtering capacity to the entire suite of Google Apps for education. To ensure our students continued safety in an online environment, effective January 20, 2017, we will make use of these expanded capabilities throughout the district.
The Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan is a comprehensive approach to addressing bullying including cyberbullying. Kaneland is committed to working with students, staff, families, law enforcement agencies, and the community to prevent issues of violence. In consultation with these constituencies, we have established this plan for preventing, intervening, and responding to incidents of bullying and retaliation.
The Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan
Kaneland School District is committed to educating the whole child, ensuring that each child in the district is healthy, safe, engaged, challenged, and supported. To this end, Kaneland School District is committed to providing all students with a safe learning environment that is free of bullying. This commitment is an integral part of our comprehensive efforts to promote learning, and to prevent and eliminate all forms of bullying and other harmful and disruptive behaviors that can impede student learning.
We believe that students need adult supervision when exploring the Internet. The sites found on Kaneland's pages were selected for inclusion by administrators, teachers and in some cases students while under teacher supervision.
Acceptable Use Policy
If you choose to allow your child to visit any of these sites from home, you need to assume the responsibility of supervision.
