Last school year, there was a strong interest from middle school and high school staff and parents for greater student software monitoring. Based on this feedback, we are introducing Securly to safeguard our students and empower our educators while using technology tools.
In school, SecurlyClassroom allows our teachers to monitor student use of technology in a variety of ways. Teachers are able to push web pages out to students, monitor student progress, minimize distractions, and keep students focused on learning.
At home, SeculryHome assists parents in monitoring their children’s technology usage. When a school device goes home and is off the district network, SecurlyHome allows parents to customize controls on their child’s school device. Parents will have the ability to view recent sites visited and videos watched on their child’s school-owned device. Parents can customize web filtering rules to supplement those that the school already has in place. Parents can opt to specify times when their child can’t go online and receive flagged activity notifications for their child and/or a weekly snapshot of their child’s online activity.
Additionally, SecurlyAuditor and SecurlyFilter gives our district tools for real-time scanning of email, documents, and drives for artificial intelligence-based notifications of nudity, cyberbullying, self harm, and violence.
