Gaggle Speaks

Ideas, news, and advice for K-12 educators and administrators to help create safe learning environments.

Round-the-clock student safety is nothing new at Gaggle. Hundreds of school districts and thousands of schools have relied on Gaggle Safety Management to keep millions of students safe since 1998.

Keeping kids safe online shouldn't create more work for you. Our team of trained safety representatives review content indicative of bullying, violence, self-harm, sexual predation and other harmful situations. And by customizing who receives email, phone calls or text notifications from our safety team, these passionate and talented individuals become an extension of your staff.

We appreciate the time three principals from Illinois spent with us to talk about how they've benefited from working with Gaggle and shared some stories about how we've helped to keep their students safe. Sean Foster from Central Catholic High School in Bloomington, Matt Hutchison from Taylorville High School and David LaFrance, principal at Oakland Elementary School in Bloomington School District 87 (IL), share their stories in a new video series, "From the Principal's Office."

Emergency contacts concerning student safety shouldn't be limited to IT admins, counselors or even district administrators. The decision should be up to you, and often it's school principals who know their students best and play an integral role maintaining safe 1:1 environments and keeping students safe.
