DISCLAIMER: Some users have noticed that their district devices give them a warning message alerting them to the fact that installing this certificate allows your internet activity to be monitored. The web filtering technology used in the District to block inappropriate content checks the web site prior to allowing it to be viewed to ensure that no inappropriate content is accessed while using the district’s network. However, no district staff member is monitoring this activity. 

*Some common websites which use https such as Google, Yahoo, Bing and Facebook will have limited functionality if accessed by a device that does not have a certificate. If Screen Lock is currently not enabled on your phone and you wish to enable it, there will be instructions at the end on how to enable it.*
