What sites do you allow staff access but not students?
I am new to the forum so please be nice! I am a teacher (sorry!) in a secondary school, with a network manager who believes that RM is the best thing ever and there is no other way to run a network!
So basically, I have doubts as to whether he actually has a clue or not!
Having worked in another school in the area also connected through the same internet provider, the differences between the schools policies have shocked me greatly.
To cut it short, in one school I was allowed pretty much unfiltered access (obviously porn would be filtered!), and could access youtube, facebook, bebo etc. This was logged and if accesses to facebook etc were seen during teaching hours you obviously would be questioned, but apart from that it was basically restriction free.
In the second school staff do not have access to youtube. facebook, google images etc. Staff are on the same internet connection (and filtering) as the pupils. It obviously is possible for different groups to have different filtering as evidenced by one of the two schools, but the second school just doesn't know how to administer this properly.
My question is, do you allow staff different internet viewing permissions to students- and if so what can staff view that students can't? Please could you answer the poll and post details in the thread?
Thanks for your time in answering this!
