Use this form to request that a website be either blocked or unblocked for teachers, staff, or students. Because websites are blocked or unblocked for a particular group (6-8 students, all students, or teachers), some requests may need additional review before action is taken. Websites unblocked for grades TK-5 are automatically unblocked for grades 6-8 also.

All fields are required. One website per request, please.

    The content on this website is aligned to the District curricula and the California State Standards.

    The website meets the provisions set forth in Board Policy 4040.

    The website does not require any identifying student information to be transmitted, including name, student ID, username, or grade level.

    NOTE: Not checking all four boxes above may cause your request to automatically be rejected.
