TEXAS | 5,001 - 25,000 STUDENTS | SAFETY MANAGEMENT FOR GOOGLE
For Wichita Falls Independent School District, monitoring the mental and emotional health of 14,100 students across 26 campuses was difficult. It became near impossible when they implemented 1:1 Google Chromebooks without having a formal system in place.
When Wichita Falls ISD realized that it needed a more formalized approach to monitoring student mental health issues, it called on Gaggle for help. The district revamped their culture, implementing new physical, emotional, and social health supports, including student safety software for the Google platform.
Since implementing Gaggle, Wichita Falls ISD has used the student safety platform to intervene in at least 10 different situations that could have turned into crises had no one responded or helped out at the right time. In some cases, the Gaggle alerts prompted administrators to make calls to students’ homes at 2:00 AM or to make an impromptu home visit to thwart potentially dangerous situations.
