Case Study

Mooresville Graded School District: Digital Safety Sentry


Reliable Way to Monitor Email and Files

The Challenge:

Located in Mooresville, North Carolina, Mooresville Graded SD serves 6,200 students across eight schools. With a 1:1 initiative rolled out across all grades, and with students in the third grade and up taking those computers home, the district needed a reliable way to monitor email and files online.

A Sentry for Digital Content

The Solution:

Implementing Gaggle has helped the administrative team at Mooresville Graded SD rest easier at night. The district knows that Gaggle is continually watching for keywords and other indicators of a problem—and that the technology is backed up by human safety experts who vet the content and decide on the best path forward.

Proving Its Value

The Results:

In place for about 10 years, Mooresville Graded SD’s student safety platform has proven its value on numerous occasions. Of particular concern are the alerts regarding possible illegal activity, self-harm, and violence toward others.

Due to Gaggle's proactive approach to student safety, the district has successfully intervened in scenarios ranging from planned physical fights between students to possible break-ins where police were called to investigate.

Other Case Studies

This California district chose Gaggle’s deep insight and analytics to monitor its 10,000 students across eight schools. Instead of punishing students for inappropriate online activity, administrators build trust and have one-on-one conversations with students to solve problems and promote better behaviors.
This Ohio district has been using Gaggle for years, but the explosion of technology now makes the online student safety platform more critical than ever. When some grades moved to 1:1, Gaggle picked up on even more student situations, ensuring that administrators are making the right investment choice year after year.
At the recommendation of the district’s superintendent, Vancouver Public Schools implemented Gaggle to help keep students safe when they use district-provided devices. Students, teachers, and administrators now have a centralized platform that they can rely on to monitor the use of technology and bring attention to serious issues.
