Student Laptops: Error Message Connecting to https Sites

by Randy Ziegenfuss

Several students and parents have brought to our attention an error message that is received when accessing secure sites such as Facebook and Falcon Apps. We have investigated this issue and realize this is a result of the parental control setting on the laptops. To address the error, we have made some changes on our servers in the District. When students arrive at school for the first time next week and log on to the network, the new setting will be pushed to the laptop and the sites will be available outside of the District network. Please email Dr. Ziegenfuss (rziegenfuss@stsd.org) with the URL of other secure sites with which you are experiencing a similar issue. We will review the sites and make the adjustment on our server. We are also looking at alternative parental control/filtering options for home use. As we make a determination, we will communicate that decision to everyone via the TL2014.org site. Thanks for your patience as we work through these bumps!
