Shining a Light on Student Safety

Picture this: A student is struggling with issues that she hasn’t shared with any of her friends, classmates, or even her family. She writes about her problems in a Google doc at school, getting her thoughts and feelings out. That’s where this story ends, right? Wrong. Not when Gaggle is part of the safety program being implemented in a district.

Thanks to Gaggle, schools can be alerted to intervene with situations just like this. By sitting down with the student, a counselor, and the principal—and by communicating with parents—it opens up the door for the student to share her troubles. As an educator, you may not always see everything that goes on. Gaggle helps shine a light where there normally wouldn’t be any.

Principal Douglas Fulton of Freedom High School explained to us that Gaggle gives you a bit more evidence and support when a parent is not aware or accepting of the struggles a student is going through. He believes most parents are very thankful to learn when their children are having issues they were unaware of.
