Bark for Schools
When schools give students access to devices and online accounts, an incredible world of learning opportunities opens up — as well as potential dangers. Digital safety is critically important to Tooele County School District, which is why we are now using Bark for Schools to help us protect our students both online and in real life.
Bark monitors for signs of potential issues like:
- Suicidal ideation
- Sexual predators
- Threats of violence
- And more
Alerts at the first signs of danger
When possible dangers arise on school-issued accounts, Bark for Schools sends us alerts so we can address the situation in a timely manner. These alerts also give us insights that help us promote the wellness of the entire student body.
Sign up to get alerts with Parent Portal
Kids use their school-issued accounts both at school and at home, and families are often in a better position to respond to urgent alerts after hours, on weekends, and during breaks. You will receive an invitation to create your free account for the Bark for Schools Parent Portal. As soon as you opt-in, you’ll be able to receive after-school hours alerts if Bark detects potentially time-sensitive issues.
Note: Inappropriate activity that triggers an alert in the Parent Portal means that your student is attempting to access inappropriate content.
