Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a cost to me to use Securly Portal?
Eastern Carver County Schools has an agreement with Securly to provide internet filtering for the District and as such all parents of children attending an Eastern Carver County School has no cost to use the Securly Portal.
How do I modify what is allowed on my child’s Chromebook at home?
You can click on the Securly portal link at the top of your weekly email from Securly. Then in the portal click on “setting” on left side of the page, select the child ( each child can have different setting ) from the list and then scroll down and select to allow or deny all sites related to a “category” on the right side of the page. You can also deny specifics sites by clicking on the Allow/Deny box with the “+” in red on the upper right corner of the page. Simply enter the URL of the site and that site will be block for that child on the chromebook when away from school. Note: A best practice is to not change the allow or deny settings based on a Category as you may block other useful sites. Instead we suggest you use the Allow/Deny feature to block only specific sites.
I am not able to allow/deny some categories?
The District has blocked access to some specific web categories and you are not able to change the state. There is no way for you to see the current state for these types of categories but be assured they are blocked.
When I am in “settings” all I see is a video about the Securly Parent Portal?
The first time you go into the setting for each child you will have the option of playing a how-to video for the Securly Parent Portal. If you want to go directly to the settings for your child, click on the blue button called “Mange my setting” and the settings screen for that child will appear. After you select the “Manage my setting” you will not see the video next time you enter the site.
Which email address will be use by Securly Parent Portal?
All our data for setting up your Securely Portal comes directly from Eastern Carver County Schools Campus Portal. We setup the first two guardians for each child and we use the guardian’s email address designated as the “primary” for delivery of the weekly email summary as well as the account which will be used for the Securly Parent Portal.
Review the Parent Report
A Parent Report will be provided via email from email@example.com to the primary and secondary custodial parent email address as listed Campus Portal. The report provides the following information: Sites, Educational Sites, Searched Words, and Video. At the top of each email you may also click on “Visit your portal” for details and your student(s) specific internet activity.
As a parent you may also logon to the Securly web portal anytime using your email address. In the Securly web portal you have the option to permit/restrict Internet access when your student’s Chromebook is away from school. You have the option to block additional categories of websites along with specific sites. Parents are not able to change which sites are blocked by the district or change blocked categories.
To use the Securly portal you will need to wait until you get your first email from Securly and then click on the Sign Up link to create your account. After that you can enter your email address and click “Forgot Password?” to get a reminder password sent to your email address.
