I'm just curious if you were able to glean the primary motivation behind
blocking Facebook to students. There's no shortage of support around
using FB for instruction, yet most Oregon K12 blocks it. Is it
possible/probable that most common reason to utilize a filtering system
on FB is to mitigate student supervision?

Most who responded said they allow it for staff and/or administrators (mainly to monitor cyberbullying) and block it for students. A few block it for everyone (as we do now). All of this information will be helpful as we proceed with the decision-making and policy process here at Central Linn.
