4. Internet Filtering
Software -- Approved. Joe Ogden discussed the search
over the past 2 years for effective software that was affordable. The filtering
software found initially was in the $10,000 to $12,000 range. So the school
opted to use free software as a stopgap measure. The software has now inproved
in both quality and price. The school has recently purchased internet filtering
software that should effectively block students from pornography and illegal
sites "without overblocking". The software should allow specific
sites to be allowed by the system administrator (Mr. Ogden) to be accessed
that would otherwise be blocked due to content (e.g. CNN or MSN news site
that include wording related to bombings or other terrorist activities).
The software has been purchased for about $1200 and is expected to be fuly
installed on all school internet computers by August 17th.

was updated from the previous plan approved in 1997. The plan give the present
