Setting an IP Registry for Students

The IP Registry security feature allows schools to prevent students from logging into Edgenuity from outside the school’s network (also referred to as No Access IP Registry). Edgenuity also offers IP Registry for Instruction and Assignments only which allows students to complete Instruction and Assignments off school grounds, but not assessments. The third option builds off the previous one, but with the addition of pretests and quizzes. All other forms of assessments are blocked. If the system bypasses an assessment for a student working at home, the student will automatically be presented with that assessment when he or she returns to school.

IP Registry rules apply to the student's home school. Enrollments in another school should respect the home school setting. So, if a student's home school does not have IP Registry, the student should not have activities blocked.

To enable IP Registry, school IT staff can follow the steps below to enter the IP addresses (or ranges) of the firewall or edge router that represents their network’s gateway to the internet. Exceptions can be added for individual students as needed, including those who are homebound.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are lab assessments blocked IP Registry is enabled?
No. Lab assessments are always available, even when IP Registry is enabled.
If IP Registry is enabled to allow access to Instruction and Assignment activities, what happens when students reach the assessments?
Assessments are temporarily and automatically bypassed, allowing students to move on to the next instruction or assignment in the course. When the student logs in again from a registered IP address, the bypassed assessments are unlocked, sending the student back in the course to complete any skipped assessments.
Are there any courses that are not supported through IP Registry?
The AP World Language Courses and Sophia Dual Credit courses are fully accessible, even when IP Registry is enabled. All other courses are supported by IP Registry.

     Tips

    If you are going to set up IP Registry for students and educators, have your local network configured to have separate subnets to separate the users connecting with them.
