Why does shen ban vpn? Do you know how sketchy that is? Does shen want to monitor what we do on our phones like some little babysitter? I think we can handle what we do on OUR phones that WE pay for, not Shen

A.  School district are mandated to provide content filtering.  Using a VPN can circumvent the content filter and are not necessary because the school’s network is secure.  As per the BYOD policy students are welcome to use their personal devices while connected to the district’s WiFi (SHEN-BYOD).  The use of personal data plans while at school is a violation of the BYOD policy.
