With 10 schools serving 5,500 students and a new 1:1 technology initiative in place, School District 87 in Bloomington, IL needed a trusted provider to keep students safe. In order to help prevent the many issues students face both online and offline—such as bullying, fighting, suicide, and self-harm—the district turned to the Gaggle student safety service.
Before adopting Gaggle, the district had devices and its students had email accounts using Microsoft Office 365, but they were reluctant to allow students to send and receive emails outside of the District 87 domain. “We wanted a product that could do that monitoring for us and notify us on anything that needed to be followed up on,” says Barry Reilly, Superintendent of Schools. “We now have that great confidence with Gaggle.”
