Bolingbrook High School takes your child’s online safety and privacy seriously. The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires that K-12 schools and libraries use internet filters and implement other measures to protect children from harmful online content.
Our district has adopted the Hāpara Instructional Suite to assist with this requirement, along with other important learning tasks. Hapara is a powerful instructional management tool that allows classroom educators to support student learning in both their physical and digital classrooms. It fulfills a District need as we have migrated to a 1:1 learning environment by contributing to Valley View's commitment towards building a responsive learning environment (VVSD Strategic Plan). Responsible use of Hapara will ensure alignment with the District’s vision to support students and build relationships, rather than breakdown the relationship between the student and staff member and/or between staff members. We will begin using it in a remote and hybrid capacity starting on March 2nd, 2021. This is a great opportunity for your child/children because it will provide new ways to personalize learning to meet their individual needs, keep them safe during online lessons and provide them with ongoing feedback on their work to encourage continuous learning and growth.
