PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Park City High School students wasted no time contacting their principal when they recently discovered that filtering software blocked access to LGBTQ search terms on school-issued computers.
School administrators fixed the issue, but it raised questions about how it happened? District spokesman Andrew Frink says the filters had been mistakenly implemented as part of a software upgrade.
In a related incident, the Utah Black Lives Matter website has been blocked all year, Park City School District students said. They reportedly complained about it to teachers, but access is still denied.
