The Belle Fourche School District has now implemented GoGuardian Parent (free for parents), a mobile app designed to provide parents/guardians insight and control over their student's online activity when on school-managed devices and accounts. First, the GoGuardian Parent app provides an overview of your children's online activity on school-managed devices and accounts - this overview includes the apps, extensions, documents, and websites your student visited. Second, GoGuardian Parent provides you with an additional set of internet controls that you can set for out-of-school hours*. GoGuardian Parent was created to help provide students additional educational support and is a companion to the classroom engagement and internet filtering tools that our school uses.
What is included in this app:
Top 5 overview of your student's online activity
Any teacher interventions related to your student's online activity
30-day overview of your student's online activity
Ability to block websites on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours*
Ability to pause internet access on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours*, either on-demand or at a scheduled time
*Out-of-school hours will last from 4:00 PM to 7:45 AM, Mon – Thur & All day Sat, Sun, and Fri when there is no school.
