GoGuardian, an education technology company, announced that the Delaware Department of Education selected GoGuardian as its partner to deliver advanced content filtering and student safety solutions for school-managed devices.
Delaware’s more than 200 public and charter schools will be supported by GoGuardian Admin, a system for monitoring and filtering content built specifically for K-12 learning environments. GoGuardianBeacon 24/7, a safety solution that supports student mental health.
“Whether students are attending class in our school buildings or remotely, technology is an integral part of their learning. This is an important and necessary investment in student safety,” said Delaware Secretary of Education Susan Bunting. “Although some districts and charter schools have purchased their own limited programs in the past, this statewide system is more comprehensive and will provide all Delaware public school students strong protection while saving schools the local purchase costs.”
Schools and districts can also use GoGuardian Beacon 24/7 to monitor for possible harm to others through threats, violence, and bullying. The machine learning model provides round-the-clock detection of searches on school-managed devices for guns and bombs, violent acts, bullying, and cyberbullying, intelligently alerting school leaders to review and activate the right responders when needed.
GoGuardian Admin and GoGuardian Beacon 24/7 are provided to Delaware students as part of a $1.6 million project in partnership with the Delaware Department of Education and Delaware Department of Technology and Information. The project is funded by Delaware’s federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund and Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund allocations as provided in the federal CARES Act.
