As the Lee’s Summit School District continues its mission of giving students one-to-one access to Chromebook devices, we wanted to give you a quick technology update that impacts our elementary school students and teachers. At the Sept. 24 board meeting, the Board of Education approved the purchase of new Dell Chromebook 5190s for grades K-6.

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District uses an internet filter called Securly to help keep students safe while using their school-issued Chromebooks. After listening to parent and community feedback on students’ technology use, we are pleased to announce that parents and guardians will now have access to Securly Home, a feature allowing visibility and control of their child’s internet access at home while on the district-issued Chromebook. Securly Home is now part of the software solution the district is currently subscribing to on an annual basis.
For online safety tips and important conversations to have around technology, please see our district tip sheet on technology usage over the holidays.
