Cybersecurity has become an increasingly prevalent problem. Ransomware, Phishing, and Denial of Service attacks have become commonplace. School staff and students are being targeted across the country. School insurance companies are raising recovery deductibles and requiring security measures to be increased.
In order to maintain a secure digital environment, we are continually evaluating and making changes to our technology procedures and infrastructure here at Roscommon Area Public Schools.
As part of our increased security measures this school year, we are not allowing students to use personal laptops in the classrooms during school hours. Each student is provided a school-issued Chromebook. The devices provided are secured and monitored to help ensure a productive and safe educational environment.
