GoGuardian is a student monitoring tool used by GBCS. GoGuardian accounts will be automatically created for all new teachers, counseling, and select support staff. Additional staff can request a GoGuardian account by contacting Tech Services.
Teachers/Staff can use GoGuardian Teacher during school hours with on-campus students to:
- monitor student Chromebook activity
- block sites not appropriate to the class
- limit the number of pages/tabs students have open during class
- automatically deploy certain pages when class starts
In the event that a student appears to be off-task or needs help, Go Guardian also allows teachers to discreetly send a message to the student's Chromebook and vice versa.
All teachers with class lists will have GoGuardian classrooms created for them at the start of each year/semester. Teachers can also create their own GoGuardian classrooms from scratch or from Google Classroom if desired.
