Difficulty Safeguarding Student's Online Activity

The Challenge:

A grade 7-12 district with 100 years of service to California’s high desert, Victor Valley relied on student reporting and internal monitoring safeguards before identifying a robust digital safety technology system in place to keep students safe in their school-provided accounts.

Building Trust Through One-On-One Conversations

The Results:

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. Knowing how vulnerable children can be to pedophilia and other criminal acts online, Victor Valley Union High School District in Victorville, California, keeps close tabs on any relevant communications that its students may be having with outside sources.
