Case Study

Keeping Students Safe on Campus and at Home

Widefield School District 3 relied on school counselors spread across 16 different campuses to oversee the social and emotional health of its students. Because these counselors wore many hats, finding the time for one-on-one interactions with students was difficult at best.

More on Widefield School District 3

Challenge:

School counselors didn’t have the time or resources needed to help support
students’ social and emotional well-being across 16 school campuses.

Solution:

Gaggle flags all potentially inappropriate or dangerous student situations and
alerts district and school leaders immediately, thus allowing school staff to
intervene and get students the help they need.

Result:

One of Widefield’s first alerts from Gaggle signaled that a student was in crisis.
This emergency situation was quickly averted when district administrators
responded to the notification. With this added oversight into student
communications, school leaders now closely monitor and follow up on every
Gaggle alert as they come in to help prevent worst-case scenarios.
