Addressing Schools’ Concerns About Moving Email to the Cloud

After moving its email to the cloud, St. Charles Community Unit School District 303, a high-achieving school system located 40 miles west of Chicago, needed a way to add some district controls around how messages were filtered, monitored and archived. Gaggle’s hosted backup and archiving product, combined with Safety Management for Google Apps, solved this problem by providing the district one solution to address all of its concerns.

District network analyst, Kim Muhr, now handles open records and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests quickly, while schools are provided behind-the-scenes filtering and monitoring  of student email, providing the district one solution to its concerns around moving email to the cloud. Additional benefits include:

  • a quick and reliable way to restore somebody’s email directly to their inbox, even if they decided to truly delete their entire mailbox;
  • the ability to set litigation holds for messages or for different user accounts or departments; and
  • never any hesitation or delay when reaching out to Gaggle’s customer service.
