School Guard - Internet Solution for Parents and Schools
Our School Guard solution would help address this issue, at no cost to schools/districts:
With our solution, parents can opt-in to allow a school policy to manage personal device use during school hours. The school policy could block different types of traffic and destinations on student-owned devices during school hours, including total internet access during standardized testing or access to social networks during normal school hours.
Parents can also block or limit messaging and calls during school hours using our controls.
While our solution won’t address the entire population, it is also FREE and a step in the right direction showing concerned parents that they have an option to work WITH the school to manage appropriate use.
Even if the school’s policy is “no outside internet access”, our solution can help students/families comply with that by shutting that outside access off during school hours.
