CTL®, manufacturer of the rugged drop and water resistant CTL Education Chromebook, announced their partnership with Securly, the world’s leading cloud-based provider of Internet Security for K-12 schools from the OETC IntegratED and OETC AcceleratED conferences today. The CTL® Education Chromebook with Securly will help school IT Administrators meet the requirements of the Child Internet Protection Act (CIPA compliance) by offering a dashboard summary of student activity as well as a full audit trail of websites students have either visited or been blocked from accessing. By implementing the CTL® Education Chromebook with Securly in their 1:1 programs, IT staff and educators will be better able to manage and secure the students online screen time both in school and at home.

“CTL Education products are designed to provide the best Return on Investment for our school customers” Says Mike Mahanay, CTL’s Chief Marketing Officer. “By offering Securly on products such as our CTL Education Chromebook, we help our education customers with CIPA compliance at no additional cost”.

Securly is used on over 100,000 Chromebooks in over 500 schools in the US. Securly is the first web filter that has been designed from the ground up for schools providing internet safety for kids. It is completely cloud based, requires minimal set up time and is cost effective. Securly solves the problem of “over blocking” in schools by allowing educators to safely use 21st century instructional tools such as Google, YouTube and Wikipedia in the classroom. The CTL Education Chromebook with Securly will allow teachers to obtain historical information about how students have been spending their time in class. Using the easy-to-read dashboard, teachers can quickly determine if a student has been browsing school-approved web content. In the event that a student is off task, the teacher now has the ability to intervene and take appropriate action. Securly’s web monitoring features save teachers time, allowing them to focus their attention on providing the best possible learning experience for their students.

The company has recently released “Securly for Parents”, the first product to give parents a bird’s eye view of their child’s life online, both in school and at home. Securly for Parents, which will be also be available on the CTL Education Chromebook, will keep parents informed and engaged in the learning process.
