Portsmouth School Committee Chairman David Croston promises to investigate allegations made in a new report released earlier this week by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on web filtering, reports local blog Hard Deadlines.
According to the ACLU report, Portsmouth is the only district in the state to block websites with material on religion and entertainment, reports EastBayRI.com.
The report also claims the Portsmouth School District blocks material and websites which include information on gay and lesbian rights, according to EastBayRI.com.
Croston told those in attendance at Tuesday's meeting he would look into the report.
