Fillmore USD Implements Gaggle Safety Management

CALIFORNIA  |  UNDER 5,000 STUDENTS  |  SAFETY MANAGEMENT FOR MICROSOFT

A Digital Safety Net for Students

It’s not too often that an investment in new technologies yields immediate results, but that’s exactly what happened when Fillmore Unified School District in California decided to implement Gaggle Safety Management for Microsoft 365.

 

How to Ensure Student Safety Online?

The Challenge:

Fillmore USD, a K-12 district in Southern California, has been using Microsoft 365 since 2015 and recently started using both Microsoft Office and Teams. The district provided devices to students during the pandemic, and currently has over 2,000 registered users on Teams. Fillmore USD needed a technology partner that would support their online student safety initiatives, provide access to resources, and ensure a good experience using the platform’s products.

Gaggle Works Even Outside the Classroom

The Solution:

Fillmore USD partnered with Gaggle in January 2020 to monitor student activity on Microsoft 365 and Teams even outside of the traditional brick-and-mortar school. This California district is also using the Gaggle Safety Management platform to monitor content within ContentKeeper.

Gaggle Helps Districts Respond to Incidents Quickly

The Results:

Fillmore USD knew it made the right decision when two alerts of student situations came in right away. The district can now react swiftly and appropriately to help students when concerning situations arise—even if administrators and teachers are not seeing their students every day.

“We knew we were going to be debilitated and frankly, unable to address student safety concerns on a daily basis, 24/7. Having Gaggle as a component when we put the device in a student’s hands gives us that additional reassurance.”

Other Case Studies

This Texas district initially implemented 1:1 Chromebooks without having a formal system in place to monitor students’ mental health issues. The district then revamped its culture with new supports to promote student mental health and well-being, including the Gaggle student safety platform.

After rolling out a 1:1 Chromebook program across grades K-8, this California district needed to ensure that students would be protected online. Gaggle has helped the district save a student life every year since its implementation and enabled educators to intervene in cases of bullying and self-harm.
