NCSD & Gaggle Partner to Keep Kids Safe Online

Nye County School District and Gaggle Partner to Implement Student Safety Management Tool for G Suite for Education


The Nye County School District and Gaggle are announcing a partnership to keep students safe when they use G Suite for Education. We are excited to notify you that for the 2020-21 school year all of NCSD will use the Gaggle Safety Management Solution for G Suite to proactively protect students and ensure that they are safely and correctly using school-provided digital tools.

About Gaggle

Since 1999, Gaggle has been the leader in helping K-12 districts manage student safety on school-provided technology. The safety solution proactively assists districts 24/7/365 in the prevention of student suicide, bullying, inappropriate behaviors, school violence, and other harmful situations. Most importantly, Gaggle continues to help hundreds of districts across all 50 states avoid tragedies and save lives. For more information, visit www.gaggle.net and follow Gaggle on Twitter at @Gaggle_K12.

The Gaggle safety management solution uses a combination of artificial intelligence and trained safety experts to provide real-time analysis and review of students’ use of online tools within the G Suite. It constantly scans accounts for harmful content and alerts school officials when students show signs of self-harm, depression, thoughts of suicide, substance abuse, cyberbullying, credible threats of violence against others, or other harmful situations. With this solution, NCSD can proactively identify students who are struggling, provide support where needed, and create a safer school environment.

Technology within schools is huge right now! We are in the technology age, and we want to keep up with the ever-changing times. However, we want to do it all safely, carefully, and respectfully. Students and parents need to know that, while NCSD provides a variety of technology tools, those tools need to be used appropriately and as expected. We are going to do everything we can to ensure student safety, so we are excited to offer this solution.

Respectfully,

Mr. Robert Williams

Director of Technology
