At Governor Mifflin School District, student safety is our #1 priority. In compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), all laptops are equipped with web-filtering software, which ensures that students are not accessing inappropriate content. In addition, all virtual classrooms are monitored by Governor Mifflin GOLD teachers. Finally, we offer a Digital Citizenship course that teaches students safe internet practices.
