What does this mean for you? During the process of switching over, you may find sites that were once unblocked to now be blocked. This is not an expected behavior of the filter but it does sometimes occur. In the event of this happening, you can follow two easy steps (see tutorial) to request the site to be vetted and unblocked by someone from our team. For those of you who are on a Mac, you may have to authenticate within the site’s block screen which is also a two-step process (see tutorial) to receive a more relaxed filter profile. During the initial phase-in of the new filter, the BHBL Tech Staff and NERIC will be closely monitoring these unblock requests. We anticipate a rapid turnaround for unblocking requested sites
Upon request, we can provide teachers with a sample student login so if you have concerns that a site might be blocked for students, you can test it out before your class.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this transition. If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com
Thank you,Michael Steinberg
