Salem-Keizer Public Schools has implemented a new tool to help keep our students safe online.
The GoGuardian Parent App is a mobile app for Android and iOS devices that allows parents and guardians to monitor and control their students’ internet usage on their school district-issued devices.
(Note: This does not apply to devices you personally own.)
Through the app, parents/guardians can view the top five sites visited in each of the following categories over the past day, week, two weeks or month.
Parents/guardians can view a time-stamped list of every website their child has accessed or attempted to access over the last month, and how much time they spent on that site. If the student was blocked from viewing a page by the district’s web filter, the list will indicate it.
Parents/guardians have the ability to control their student’s internet usage outside of school hours. Student devices are monitored through the district’s internet filter 24/7, but parents can block additional websites before and after school if they choose. For example, some parents block certain gaming or social media websites during homework time.
Block All Internet Access
Parents/guardians can pause internet access outside of school hours for various lengths of time, including 15 or 30 minutes, 1, 2 or 4 hours, or for the rest of the day. Additionally, parents can create a recurring schedule of periods during which they don’t want their child to access the internet.
Helpful links, answers to frequently asked questions and more information about the GoGuardian parent tools is available on the Student Internet Activity Reports webpage.
