CALIFORNIA | 25,000+ STUDENTS | SAFETY MANAGEMENT FOR GOOGLE
Desert Sands USD implemented a new 1:1 digital device initiative to encourage their 29,000+ students to extend their learning outside of the classroom.
The district soon realized the need for more human eyes on its students’ safety on a 24/7/365 basis, as they were relying on just three teachers to handle student situations.
Previously the district was using a few different student email monitoring systems, the district liked Gaggle’s artificial intelligence (AI)-based screening capabilities. Combined with “real human” monitoring, the solution helps the district make quick—and sometimes lifesaving—decisions.
They adopted Gaggle to work with its G Suite and 1:1, which provides both in-classroom and take-home devices to all students in second through twelfth grade.
The new platform replaced an old system whereby flagged email was sent to the district’s three-person Teachers on Special Assignment (TOSA) team.
Now, the district uses Gaggle—a robust system that monitors Google email and Google drive accounts, provides activity dashboards, and intervenes when students are in trouble.
