Teachers will use a variety of digital resources to help students learn during the 2023-24 school year. These digital resources have been checked and approved by FCPS. Please provide your consent for your student to use these resources through the Parent Digital Consent System. You can find more information about FCPS-approved digital resources on the Digital Resources in FCPS webpage.Device Activity Report for Parents
FCPS has tools to help parents and guardians know more about their child’s activity on the child’s assigned FCPS device. These tools are provided by Lightspeed, our internet content filtering service, directly to the verified parent or guardian at no cost to families. You may sign up for a weekly Parent Report, which will provide a list of the top sites your child visited. Sign up for the Internet Use Parent Portal and log in anytime to see more details about your child’s browsing and “pause” access to the internet during non-school hours. Find out more about Lightspeed Monitoring and sign up for these services.
