WASHINGTON | 5,001 - 25,000 STUDENTS | SAFETY MANAGEMENT FOR GOOGLE, SAFETY MANAGEMENT FOR MICROSOFT
Using Microsoft 365 and Google for Education across a variety of devices (iPads, Chromebooks, and laptops), the district wanted to ensure all of its students are protected in the digital environments where they’re interacting, sharing, and collaborating. This became even more critical when learning moved off campus and into the virtual world.
With a student safety platform already in place for students in grades 3–12, VPS turned up its 1:1 initiative and extended its use of Gaggle across all grade levels. This would not only give the district complete visibility over its students’ online activities, it also helps promote digital citizenship and level the digital equity playing field.
Gaggle helped VPS expand its digital equity by ensuring that students can safely access all of the information and resources that they need to learn. It is especially critical in remote learning environments to have a proactive approach to student safety.
