TEXAS | 25,000+ STUDENTS | SAFETY MANAGEMENT FOR GOOGLE
The district relied on self- and peer-reporting and was managing a high number of suicide ideation and self-harm situations. Knowing that students who are in crisis aren’t always going to share their fears and worries with an adult, Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD in Texas wanted a technology platform that would put administrators, counselors, and teachers in closer touch with their 25,000+ students across its 37 campuses.
A few years ago, the district adopted Gaggle to monitor students' Google Accounts. Now the district has a crisis team that responds to Gaggle alerts. Working together, its counseling department and safety teams assess the urgency level and then respond accordingly.
By focusing on the root of the problem, Gaggle enables the district to address safety concerns in a much quicker fashion. Using Gaggle, its Anonymous Alerts app, and other tools, the district can take proactive steps to ensure that students are okay or confirm that they need assistance.
