Teachers occassionally run into useful websites blocked by an otherwise inappropriate category. For example, a teacher may want to demo blogging using Tumblr in the classroom. Instead of having to ask the admin to unblock Tumblr, if the admin has allowed teacher whitelisting for that Org Unit, the teacher can simply whitelist the site herself. The teachers whitelist the site for the entire school this way. The admin can configure whether such whitelist should be temporary or permanent. Further, admins always see an audit log of which teacher whitelisted what site for accountability.
Say, what’s that in the clouds? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Actually, it’s Securly, and they are here to rescue teachers of Massac Unit #1 School District – located in Metropolis, IL, home to Superman – from the danger posed by the evil appliance web filter.
“This is precisely how we felt after making the move to Securly”, says Tom Walker, Director of Technology for Massac. "We felt compelled to go with Securly because of its teacher-friendly benefits. For example, if teachers come across a blocked site, they can simply temporarily whitelist the site to grant access for themselves or for their students. As an IT administrator who typically receives numerous support tickets, this made my job a whole lot easier, and my teachers a whole lot happier!"

Securly is hands down the best web-filter for K-12. It is very easy to use and even easier to implement.

When we pulled our appliance and cut in Securly, multiple users actually asked me - "Wow Tim how did you make the network so much faster?"

Why didn't I hear about this before? Probably because I spent so much of my time sinking $$$ into [appliance vendor]!"
