        discounts. The filtering is configured to block
        access to graphic depictions of pornography
        and obscenity, which is also stated in our Policy

       The Internet filtering occurs at the points in the
        network where traffic leaves the private K-12
        network and enters the public Internet.
         This implementation requires no changes to
