8 Procedure for Unblocking Requested Websites May, 2009 It is the District s objective to provide teachers access to websites that can be used for instructional purposes while at the same time assuring, as much as possible, that students do not have access to inappropriate online material. Websites used by teachers must have a clear connection to the content students learn in the class. At times the District s filter may block access to a website needed to enhance students learning. In the event an instructional website is blocked by the District filter, the following procedure is followed: Teacher sends an to Sam Plambeck, Technology Curriculum Specialist. Request must include the website address, and the specific links or areas needed Technology Curriculum Specialist reviews the website. If it is appropriate for instruction, he requests that the Technology Department unblock it. When the website is unblocked, the Technology Curriculum Specialist sends an notification to the teacher. This communication should take place within 48 hours. Depending on the complexity of the website, and how well the request outlines specifically what links or areas within the website are needed, follow up communications may be necessary. Some requests to unblock may not be possible due to websites referring to other websites that are indeed blocked for good reason. Additionally, if the instructional purpose of the requested website is questionable, the Technology Curriculum Specialist will send it to the Director of Curriculum for a second review. If it is determined that the website should remain blocked, the teacher is sent an outlining the reason. In-Service 01/04/2010 Page 8

11 and Spam Filtering Over 85% of the 800,000+ s per month the District receives is spam. Spam s can clog and slow down the network. The District uses a spam filtering system that blocks spam: mass advertising, inappropriate, or otherwise non-business s. The system successfully blocks over 98% of the spam that is sent to the District. While the spam blocker is very efficient, it is not perfect, and following are methods to deal with two common problems. Problem #1: A spam was not blocked. If you do not recognize the sender as a reputable company DO NOT unsubscribe to spam s; you will only receive more spam. If you would like technology to attempt to block future spam from a particular sender, simply right click on the and forward as attachment to We will attempt to block future unwanted s from that sender. Problem #2: The spam blocker is blocking an from someone that you do want to receive from. Send the blocked address a test from your District account. This initiates a conversation thread between you and the outside (blocked) address. The spam blocker recognizes that you and the (blocked) address have an relationship and then unblocks the address after 15 minutes. This process is referred to as Auto-White listing. If the address you wish to converse with is still blocked, send an with the subject line of UNBLOCK ADDRESS and the body containing the address to Also include in the body of the the approximate date and time the sender was blocked. This will assist Technology in locating the blocked (s) in the log. In-Service 01/04/2010 Page 11
