More on Oxford Community Schools

Challenge:

The district recognized the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic, a violent tragedy, and the youth mental health crisis were having on its K-12 students.

Solution:

While initially looking at Gaggle to promote digital citizenship for virtual learning students, Oxford Community Schools quickly realized the platform could help monitor for suicidal ideation, violence, and other signs of distress.

Result:

The district has a “fleet team” of administrators and mental health professionals to respond to Gaggle alerts and has gained greater insight into students who are struggling.
