Pennoyer School District #79’s vision for 1:1 technology is to provide comprehensive, innovative, and creative instructional resources that prepare each learner to succeed in a 21st century society. Through the use of technology, educators are able to enhance information accessibility and empower students to achieve their individualized curricular goals. Pennoyer School promotes a 1:1 non-disruptive technology resource that can provide a platform for students to explore, challenge themselves, and engage with the world in a meaningful way.

Student Device Content Filtering and Parental Controls

Pennoyer School District 79’s district owned student Chromebooks and iPads are filtered on and off of the District’s network. Pennoyer’s student devices use a student safety platform “Securly”, which allows the district to block content that is explicit or dangerous, as determined by the district’s technology guidelines, IT department, and as defined in federal law. The Securly system runs in tandem with our building’s hardware content filter and web appliance provided by Sophos.


Securly Home

Securly platform offers parents and guardians greater visibility into what websites, searches, videos, and social media accessed during school and while at home. Using the web-based parent dashboard or mobile app, parents can access realtime reporting, receive alerts on inappropriate content or safety concerns, and have the ability to pause or limit device internet access while at home.

The short videos below offer an additional overview of Securly Home:


How do I sign up for Securly Home?

Each student’s guardians will automatically be enrolled into Securly Home. Pennoyer will use the contact information provided to the district via registration and will be updated as changes are made within our student information system, Skyward. If a guardian has not been granted access, please be sure the guardian information is up-to-date in our records. If you do not remember your password, or need to setup a new one, use the forget pasword link on the Securly Home sign in page.

All new account invitations to Securly Home may take up to 24 hours to process. If you have not received an email request to join after 24 hours, and should be listed as one of the guardians for your child, please contact and the technology department will assist.
