Website Request

In the realm of Internet filtering, the ultimate concern is for the safety of children while at the same time providing access to information. In accordance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA), the Richland School District employs internet content filtering software to block inappropriate content.  Occasionally a web site that has inappropriate content slips through the filter or a web site that students or staff need to access is blocked. If you feel that you have found a URL that is mishandled by our filter, please read and understand all of the following before proceeding.

This form allows you to request a change to the way a URL is handled by our internet content filter. If you are requesting that a blocked site be unblocked, please be prepared to defend the instructional or professional value of the site. As an educational institution, we rarely make exceptions to filter categorizations unless the site is instructional in nature. Also, please determine that comparable content is not already available on some other (unblocked) web site.

NOTE: Some sites are not able to be unblocked as the entire subset of the site are affected as a unit. It is also important to note that all sites unblocked affect the entire building group (staff and/or students).  All requests will be reviewed by the district and handled appropriately. Controversial site requests may be denied or take longer pending further review and evaluation of the request.

Please allow at least 3 school days for the IT department to properly vet this request. You will receive an email with the decision from our department.

Thank you.
