Greeneville City School District and Gaggle Partner to Implement Student Safety Management Tool for Microsoft Office 365

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 Office 365. 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, GCS educators can proactively identify students who are struggling, provide support where needed, and create a safer school environment.

Gaggle was one of the presenting vendors at the 2019 GCS Tech Blitz event. Many district educators provided feedback indicating the need to add the additional layer of protection to our existing set of online tools.

A team of GCS district administrators, IT staff, School Health team members, guidance counselors, and others completed a 4-hour training on February 19, 2020 to learn how to best utilize this new tool in our school safety toolbox. The team was able to work through scenario-based, collaborative exercises. Feedback from the training event has been 100% positive. The solution will GO LIVE today, February 20, 2020.
