Lightspeed Systems has partnered with the Kentucky Department of Education to provide Internet content filtering for all of Kentucky’s public schools. Lightspeed Systems was selected by the department to install and implement its Rocket Web Filter in 173 K-12 school districts statewide. The Lightspeed Systems Rocket Web Filter is now providing on- and off-campus content filtering for 1,233 Kentucky schools.
Chuck Austin, Product Manager for the Kentucky Department of Education, says, “We share in the responsibility to not only emphasize digital citizenship, but also to ensure that we have the right technology solutions which allow for safe, efficient, and secure access to the valuable resource that is the Internet. The Lightspeed Systems solution allows each of Kentucky’s school districts to customize its own experience regarding Internet content management, and also provides the granularity and reporting capability district and state leaders require for future online capacity planning.”
