netTrekker Success Story

Ysleta Independent School District

A Guide to Safe and Smart Searching

In today's classroom, every child is using the Internet to learn. The World Wide Web provides a wealth of exciting educational resources that can greatly enhance the curricula and energize teaching and learning. Ysleta Independent School District is located on the Texas/Mexico border and serves over 46,000 students, 90% of whom are Hispanic. Many would not expect this southwest urban district to be a leader in technology integration, but it is.

Ysleta ISD prides itself on providing a high quality, technology-supported education to its diverse student population and naturally, this environment includes the Internet. As district leaders knew, however, allowing students direct access to the Internet without supervision can equal disaster. That's why Ysleta chose netTrekker, an educational search tool specifically designed for education that delivers the valuable educational resources from the Internet in a safe environment for student use.
