Gaggle Stops Potential Threats
at Oklahoma School District


Preparing Students for the Real World

The Challenge:

Serving Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, OKCPS is the largest primary and secondary education district in Oklahoma with 97 schools and approximately 46,000 students enrolled. The district wanted to give its students access to email accounts to prepare them for the real world but didn’t previously have guidelines for monitoring those email accounts.

Implementing Gaggle to Ensure Student Safety

The Solution:

When students want to share vital information—but are afraid to do it face to face or through another forum—student safety platforms prove their value on a completely different level. Oklahoma City Public Schools adopted Gaggle to ensure student safety not just through brick and mortar locations, but also online.

Preventing Potentially Dangerous Situations

The Results: 

Since implementing the platform, the district has identified and intervened in a number of different potentially dangerous situations involving its students.

For example, one student wanted to alert an adult to a concerning situation—but fearing retaliation and retribution, that student wrote something inappropriate in a Google doc knowing that the student safety platform would catch it.

“We needed a service like Gaggle because monitoring 45,000 new accounts would quickly become a full-time job for multiple staff members. There’s no way we could do that.”

Other Case Studies
