How Jeffco Filtering App May Affect Your Internet Access 

Access denied logo

In conjunction with our 1:1 Chromebook Initiative, a district filtering application will soon be installed on each freshman's Jeffco Google account. This filter is applied only to the student's Jeffco Google account and his or her internet traffic when logged in to that same account. The filter is not installed on actual devices. So it is important to understand that once a student logs into their Jeffco Google account (, using any browser (Chrome, IE, Safari, etc.), on any mobile device or computer to access their schoolwork (google docs, google classroom, etc.), the filter will go into effect and be applied to all internet traffic on that device.

ISSUE #1: Users in the household using a mobile device or computer experience denial of access issues on the internet, even when trying to access legitimate sites for family use at home that were not blocked in the past. This was not an issue in the recent past.

REMEDY #1: If you think are experiencing an unexpected denial of access issue under the conditions described above (i.e. (1) your student is participating in a 1:1 Chromebook Initiative at school, and (2) you are blocked from a site that you have routinely accessed in the past, then you can probably remedy the problem by doing the following:

  1. Go to the google homepage and check to see if your student is logged into google with a account (look in the upper right corner of the page).
  2. If your student is logged in with their Jeffco Google account, log them off.

Your access to internet sites should now be restored to the settings already enabled in your browser.

: Student cannot automatically login to the network from home on a Chromebook. This was not an issue in the recent past. This issue is related to the new filtering app described above.

REMEDY #2: Students will need to follow these important, one-time instructions in the Jeffco document, "How Filtering At Home Works". The instructions are clearly illustrated and step-by-step. The process should only need to be completed once. After successful completion of the steps, connection of the Chromebook at home should once again be automatic.
