How to stop Proxy Avoidance sites

How to stop Proxy Avoidance sites

How to stop Proxy Avoidance sites

I work for a County Office of Education and have a proxy server that is used for the entire county but we have a problem with individual districts in that kids in the class room are going to proxy circumventor sites or hosting their own and bypassing our proxy. Users are required to go through our proxy for web browsing to work so we can block these sites once we find out about them. I am looking to be preventative and not reactive.

I have mentioned to my boss many times that we need to be stricter on our proxy standards but is hard to do because we host a wide variety of users.

My question is that at the school sites that we need to stop students from accessing proxy avoidance sites and want to restrict web browsing, what is the best way to do that? I want to try and avoid my techs that manage these sites from micromanaging and I don’t want to have conflicts with my existing proxy server. Any suggestions or ideas are welcome. Thanks.
