Pajaro Valley Unified School District and Gaggle Partner to Implement Safety Management for G Suite

The safety of our students is PVUSD's number one priority. With that goal in mind, we continue to take actions to help keep PVUSD students safe when they use "G Suite for Education' from Google. G Suite for Education (https://tinyurl.com/GsuitePV) is Google's set of free online storage and productivity tools for collaboration, such as Google Drive and Google Docs. PVUSD is using Gaggle Safety Management for G Suite (https://tinyurl.com/GagglePV) to further promote student and educator productivity in a safe environment.

 

The Gaggle Safety Management for G Suite service combines technology with expert safety representatives, who review content 24/7 to assure students are safe. The service uses a computer algorithm to identify words, phrases and images of concern in all students PVUSD G Suite online resources. Content is then reviewed by the safety representatives for questionable content. Depending on the severity of the item, the Gaggle representative will contact the school principal (or site designee) to alert them to the issue and for positive intervention follow up as necessary.
