ILLINOIS | 5,001 - 25,000 STUDENTS | SAFETY MANAGEMENT FOR MICROSOFT
As a Microsoft Office 365 user, the K-12 Bloomington School District 87 encompasses 10 schools and about 5,500 students. With a new 1:1 initiative underway, the district had a goal of effectively intervening in potential suicides, reducing incidences of self-harm, and thwarting such issues before they blossom into real problems.
In search of a trusted provider to work with, the district adopted Gaggle student safety software to monitor activity online, notify staff of concerning issues, and intervene when necessary.
Over the past several years, Gaggle has helped the district successfully intervene in at least six potential suicides while also keeping administrators informed about potential student fights, bullying, and other problems both on and off campus.
With Gaggle keeping watch, the district felt comfortable opening up their domain. Now, high school students can communicate with potential employers about internship programs using their school domains—something that they couldn’t do before.
