Protecting Students Online Is Our Mission
The Utica City School District has been a leading school district for many years in the area of technology and the use of online services.
We take serious precautions in protecting students. Some of the systems we use in accomplishing this task are:
- Web Filtering System - Light Speed https://www.lightspeedsystems.com/solutions/lightspeed-filter/
- Virus and Malware Protection: Cylance AI Protection and Microsoft Security Essentials
- NYSED Ed Law 2D, COPPA and FERPA compliance
We are also using G-Suite For Education. Our E-mail and Google Docs are fully protected under the Google Apps for Education agreement. Students are protected by only having the ability to email within our school's domain. They cannot send or receive emails from outside entities unless authorized by the Information Technology Department.
