NOTE: It is very rare that we announce or share information related to for-sale technology devices , as is it not the school district’s role to endorse specific products. However, in this case, we are aware of parents who have been asking for a product that integrates into their existing Securly web filtering. We are not requiring, nor are we encouraging the purchase of this product, but instead we are wanting to make sure parents are aware of this option.
Q. My child has a chromebook from the West Des Moines Schools and I like getting the weekly Securly report so I can monitor their usage. Is there a device that I can add to my home to add that filtering to our other home devices?
Answer: Yes. Securly has released a device called Securly Hub, which connects to your home network and allows you to provide web filtering for other home devices.
