LCPS has implemented an active content filter; to help safeguard the safety of students, assist in the security of our networks, to restrict access to undesirable or inappropriate materials based on the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), and to support enforcement of the Acceptable Use Policy via internet traffic filtering and monitoring.

    Our content filter utilizes features and controls to do things like enforce search engine and image viewing restrictions while employing a comprehensive and accurate database, with daily updates, of more than 1 billion entries grouped into education-specific categories.

    The teachers at Pinebrook Element teaching Internet Safety lesson using CommonSenseMedia.org and PNB is a Digital Certified School. All students receive digital citizenship lessons throughout the 2015-2016 school year.
