Internet Safety

There are many sites on the internet that can be potentially dangerous to minors. These sites are blocked with the district content filter while students are working online both in school and outside of school.

  • Frenship ISD filters block inappropriate websites rated 17+ anytime devices are connected to the internet – a federal requirement of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA).
  • Attempts to view inappropriate content will display a “blocked content” page on the device.
  • Inappropriate content is not allowed on any district-issued device.
  • Presence of weapons, pornographic materials, inappropriate language, alcohol, drug, gang related symbols or pictures found on the device will result in disciplinary actions.
  • Students are in violation of Frenship ISD policy if they bypass the district content filters by accessing these sites through proxies or by removing Frenship ISD profiles.
  • Parents are encouraged to monitor their student’s home internet usage.


Cyberbullying is defined as the use of any Internet-connected device for the purpose of bullying, harassing, or intimidating another student. (Refer to the Frenship ISD Student Code of Conduct for more information on bullying and cyberbullying.) This includes, but may not be limited to:

  • Sending abusive text messages to cell phones, computers, or any electronic device
  • Posting abusive comments on someone’s blog or social networking sites
  • Creating a social networking account or web page that masquerades as the victim’s personal site
  • Posting another individual’s personal information
  • Sending abusive comments
  • Recording and distributing media with the intent to manipulate or embarrass others
