Parent Resources

The West Catholic staff employs a number of strategies to ensure the online safety of students both at school and at home.  All student devices are protected with both an Internet content filter and with a mobile device management platform.  Additionally, we deliver digital citizenship training to all students throughout the course of the school year via their homerooms.  As always, learning to use technology effectively and responsibly is a key life skill.  Below are links to specific information regarding content filtering, restrictions, and parenting resources.
