Cincinnati Public Schools Implements Student Safety Management Tool


A Critical Investment in Student Safety

The Challenge:

Serving about 36,000 students in 63 schools spread across a 91-square-mile district in southwest Ohio, Cincinnati Public Schools is Greater Cincinnati’s largest school district and Ohio’s third largest. 

With class back in session, the district rolled out a new three-year strategic plan with a goal to focus on the health and safety of the students. With the explosion of technology in its classrooms, ensuring online student safety is more critical than ever.

Other Case Studies

After rolling out a 1:1 Chromebook program across grades K-8, this California district needed to ensure that students would be protected online. Gaggle has helped the district save a student life every year since its implementation and enabled educators to intervene in cases of bullying and self-harm.
Hoping to ensure students were safe while using Google’s suite of educational collaboration tools, this Texas district implemented Gaggle Safety Management. In December 2019, Gaggle’s digital student safety net helped prevent a suicide at Keene High School.
Oklahoma City Public Schools adopted Gaggle to ensure student safety not just through brick and mortar locations, but also online. Major student situations have been intercepted and resolved, but students have also used the system to alert administrators of other threats.
