New for 2023-2024

The GoGuardian Parent App is designed to provide parents with insights into their students’ online learning activities.  It allows parents to view their students’ screen time, browsing history, as well as receive alerts when their student accesses inappropriate content.  The app also facilitates communication between parents and educators, promoting greater collaboration in the education process.

Using the App, parents will be able to view and manage the following for devices issued by the district for student use:

  • Top 5 summary of student browsing (apps, extensions, documents, and websites visited)
  • 30-day view of websites, videos, documents, apps, and extensions
  • Website filtering to block content during out-of-school hours (4:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. Monday-Friday, including all hours on weekends and school-district holidays)
  • On-demand internet pausing that allows parents to pause all internet during out-of-school hours.
  • Scheduled internet pausing that allows parents to pre-determine periods of time internet usage should be paused
