Copy ofBCK8 5th Grade: Student Expectations & Device Care

Hello Bear Creek K-8 School Families,

After launching the district-wide TechForEd program this fall, the district is now providing families with the ability to monitor and control their student’s internet and app activity on district devices at home using the free SecurlyHome app.

While Jeffco Public Schools uses a Palo Alto firewall to monitor and filter activity and content for students when they are in school, Securly manages the filtering for school-issued devices when they are away from school.

The SecurlyHome app offers parents the ability to both monitor and control students’ internet activity outside of the Jeffco Public Schools network. The ability to monitor activity will be released the week of March 16 and the ability to control (turn off and on) categories of applications will be released a few weeks later in early April.

If your student’s device is eligible for this program, during the week of March 16 you will receive a welcome email asking you to download the SecurlyHome app and to create an account.
