LAUSD Firewall

The District has changed the way Internet sites outside of LAUSD are filtered (or blocked), which could affect access to web sites. Go to http://techsupport.lausd.net/cert_filter.htm for information on updating your web browser.

Internet Access

Due to an upgrade to the District’s Firewall, LAUSD employees can now access sites such as Gmail, YouTube, etc. When you access any site that was previously blocked, you will be asked for your Single Sign On (SSO) and will be granted timed access. Please use this new feature responsively and follow the AUP guidelines for using the network.

LAUSD AUP (BUL-999.4)

Once signed, the AUP remains in effect until revoked by the parent or if the student violates the AUP guidelines For a copy of the AUP (English and Spanish), go to http://ld04.edublogs.org/tech-documents/.
