Should IT be Making Curriculum Decisions?

June 5, 2020

 

 

Ross Young, VP of Operations:

"When I started in filtering, it was all about performance and compliance. Now there's so much more there. And IT now is wearing more hats.

One of the big problems in K-12 filtering is that IT is making curriculum decisions. We want to help get them out of that business and back into the performance compliance side and provide tools for modern learning and the one-to-one programs. With COVID-19 being a catalyst of one-to-one or what we call emergency distance learning, we need to ask:

Are districts prepped for it?

Do they have the right amount of tools to delegate?

Are they staying CIPA compliant?

Those types of questions that really deal with the instruction side, and can leverage some of the control and the power of a strong content filter at a micro-level.

We find that a lot of districts are making macro-level decisions with a big, bulky content filter and they're trying to do very micro-control-type things. It's like trying to steer an aircraft carrier. You should be able to deploy micro resources in a compliant way."

Let's continue the conversation.
