Challenge:

After rolling out Office 365 for students in grades 6–12, the district wanted to protect its students in the online environment.

Solution:

Implemented Gaggle Safety Management to address concerns about student use of email
and OneDrive on district-issued devices.

Result:

A digital safety net designed to prevent harmful content from being delivered to students—and keep it off the district server. Using Gaggle, this district helped take down a child predator while blocking his attempts to reach a young student.

“With all of these different online tools that our students have access to, it gets harder and harder to keep them safe. If I didn’t have a tool like Gaggle, we wouldn’t be able to do this. We have to have something in place that’s looking at what’s coming and going.”
