STUDENT SAFETY: New Program to Help Protect Students Online
Want to know more about the program BCS will begin using 11/13/2020 to proactively protect students and ensure that they are
safely and correctly using school-provided digital tools?
It's called 'Gaggle' and is a safety management program that 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(Google programs BCS uses).
How does it work? Gaggle constantly scans accounts for harmful content and alerts school officials when students show signs of:
Thoughts of suicide
Credible threats of violence against others
Other harmful situations
This program helps the district proactively identify students who are struggling, provide support where needed, and create a safer school environment.
