We use a program called GoGuardian to help keep students from unsafe and inappropriate websites that students should not visit. Sometimes it is overprotective and blocks sites unnecessarily. If you and your students run across this problem, there are two options to provide access.
- You can bypass the block temporarily. If a student is faced with a screen like the one above, you can bypass the safeguard for a single 45-minute period. Click the Bypass button and enter the secret Bypass password “GGPass”. Please do not share this with students! This password may change over time and we will let you know if this changes.
- If there is a site that is being blocked that you feel students need permanent access to, please send an email to Mike with a copy of the web address (url). Mike will try to permanently unblock it.
GoGuardian, like all monitoring software, is not perfect – but we can use your input to customize it and make it work for all of us.
