We're not perfect by any means, but Irving ISD in Irving, TX is one of the most open districts I know of. We do block/filter some things, but any teacher can request that a site be opened up VIA an online form. We use other technologies to throttle some sites in an effort to manage our 200mbps internet pipe (and with 10,000+ student laptops, we max our pipe during school hours). I think our stance is tedious and we may get pulled back any day pending any incidents we have - it is a hard line to hold. The bad thing is that with such a wealth of resources, bandwidth and open policies in our Title 1 district, we should have many more, high quality examples of outstanding tech use in our classrooms... :(
