Oregon Student Information Protection Act

posted May 16, 2016, 8:51 AM by Web Admin

This is to inform you of Oregon SB 187, the Oregon Student Information Protection Act, which goes into effect July 1, 2016

About OSIPA

OSIPA was designed to prohibit companies from storing K-12 student data so that students do not unintentionally disclose sensitive personal information while using educational technology in the classroom.  It would end targeted advertising based on information obtained or inferred from the student's online behavior.

What does this mean?

Starting July 1st, operators of Internet website, online service, online application or mobile application with actual knowledge that their site, service or application is used primarily for kindergarten through grade 12 schools; and was designed and marketed for kindergarten through grade 12 schools, will have to indicate in their privacy policy that they are complying with Oregon SB 187.  If this is not the case, usage of such service or application will be terminated until changes to their privacy policy is made.

Accessing Willamina Wireless Network

posted Apr 10, 2012, 3:02 PM by Richard Booker   [ updated Jan 26, 2014, 8:10 PM by Web Admin ]

Willamina School District has implemented a wireless network that is available to all students and staff.  Contact Mr. Booker for an access code for your personal device.

User Access Policy.
Willamina School District offers access to the Internet, including wireless access. The Internet is offered as an essential information source for students and staff; however, Willamina School District makes no representation or guarantee that any part of the Internet service, including the wireless service, will be uninterrupted, error-free, virus free, timely or secure; nor that any Internet content is accurate, current reliable or safe in any manner for download or any other purpose.  The District has the right to monitor and place restrictions on the material you access or post through the system.

Filtering and Monitoring

Filtering software is used to block or filter access to visual depictions that are obscene and all child pornography in accordance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA). Other objectionable material could be filtered. The determination of what constitutes "other objectionable" material is a local decision.  Filtering software is not 100% effective. While filters make it more difficult for objectionable material to be received or accessed, filters are not a solution in themselves. Every user must take responsibility for his or her use of the network and Internet and avoid objectionable sites; any attempts to defeat or bypass the District's Internet filter or conceal Internet activity are prohibited: proxies, https, special ports, modifications to district browser settings and any other techniques designed to evade.  By accepting this policy you are acknowledging that you will conduct your use of this service according to the Willamina School District's technology use policy.
