Proxy Override Account and Usage

In compliance with the Child Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and for security reasons, Waco ISD uses a proxy filter to restrict users’ (both staff and students) access to certain categories of sites deemed harmful on the internet. We upgraded to a new system and here are some of the changes you may notice.

When you are logged in to a computer with your Active Directory account, you will automatically override the filter and be given access to sites that are allowed by the filter (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.).  If you get a page that is being blocked or will not display correctly, try logging in to iboss (follow instructions of "Logging into iboss" below).

When students try to access a web page that is not categorized by the proxy filter, they will see a web filter page (see example below). If this is a site that students use often, you can submit a request for it to be allowed (whitelisted) by emailing the web address (URL) to helpdesk@wacoisd.org or submitting a work order. The Networking department will review the site and make a decision whether to allow it to be whitelisted or not.

Remember:

  1. The override is for staff use ONLY. Students should NEVER use a staff account to log in or override the filter.
  2. All internet activity is logged and stored indefinitely
  3. You are responsible for all activity logged under your account.
