Data Privacy & Security

Jefferson County Public Schools has always been a leader in protecting technology. The District was one of the first in the country to have a dedicated information security team whose primary mission is to: define policies and processes protecting technology, implement and monitor security toolsets, and monitor the environment for risk.
The increasing complexity of our interconnected systems and data sharing agreements has also created the need for dedicated resources to assist in managing the vast quantities of information used by District staff members every day. Jeffco now has dedicated central resources focusing on privacy and data governance.


Monitor Your Child's Online Activities
District Web Filtering
As part of the Colorado Internet Safety & Digital Responsibility initiative, Jeffco is required to provide a safe and secure internet environment for students to work in and learn. To maintain that type of environment, Jeffco selected the Palo Alto firewall to monitor, filter, and block restricted websites on all district computers, while connected to the district network and on devices that go home with students.
We also use Securly, which provides web filtering support at home (or on other public Wifi networks) for district Chromebook and iPad devices. Securly is activated once a student logs into their device using their district Google logins. In March 2020, we rolled out the SecurlyHome app where families can monitor activity on these devices. The SecurlyHome app offers parents the ability to both monitor and control students’ internet activity outside of the Jeffco Public Schools network.
Once you create a parent account, you will have a real-time view of your child's activity on their school device. You will also get a weekly email from Securly with a snapshot report of that activity and will be able to check your student’s internet activity anytime during the day. Click here to learn more.
