Internet Safety and Privacy Policy

Internet safety is important to us in the Orange County Public School system.We have multiple measures in place that help protect children while using the internet within our system. In accordance with Va. Code § 22.1-70.2, Orange County Public Schools has included internet safety into elementary, middle, and high school curricula. Also, all students and staff using Orange County Public Schools computers have agreed to abide by our Acceptable Use Policy published on our web site in the School Board Policies section.

All internet traffic passes through an iBoss filtering device that allows us to block offensive material. Through our iBoss policy we provide blanket protection for children by blocking access to on-line chat rooms and other forms of direct online communication.
