Blocked Image Sites

Blocked Image Sites

Recently, we found a vulnerability in our filters. Some sites such as Gettyimages.com or Shutterstock.com were not blocked. But once you enter these sites, they can be searched and certain inappropiate images can be accessed. Therefore, we have blocked a number of these image catalog sites. They do not internally filter themselves so this is the only way to stay compliant with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and protect our classrooms from inappropiate images. If students need images, they should use safer image catalog sites such as https://www.photosforclass.com/http://www.pics4learning.com/, or https://search.creativecommons.org/
