Grayslake Community High School District 127 has issued the following announcement.
Grayslake Community High School District 127 and Gaggle have joined in a partnership to keep District 127 students safe when they use G Suite for Education from Google. District 127 will use Gaggle Safety Management for G Suite to further promote student and educator productivity in a safe and controlled environment which adheres to the District’s Electronic Acceptable Use Policy.
Gaggle Safety Management combines technology with expert Safety Representatives, who review content 24/7 to assure students are safe. Gaggle identifies inappropriate words, phrases, and images in Gmail, Google Drive, Google Hangouts, and more. Trained professionals then apply consistent, school- or district-approved policies for positive intervention, alerting building administration if there is an imminent threat to a student. The Gaggle Safety Management Team determines where incident content falls based on an Incident Response Rubric.
Gaggle has been providing safe online learning products and solutions to schools and educators since 1999. The company’s focus remains on student safety so educators can have the confidence to allow learners to take advantage of current technology for communication, collaboration, and learning.

In short, Gaggle identifies three types of incidents: (1) User Violations, (2) Questionable Content (QCON), and (3) Possible Student Situations (PSS). Students are emailed directly about “User Violation” offenses stating that what they are doing, saying, or sending is inappropriate. School administration are directly emailed for the other two incident types, Questionable Content (QCON) and Possible Student Situations (PSS), and can investigate and respond to incidents as appropriate. More information about the different types of incidents can be found on the Gaggle Safety Management video seen below.
