Baugo Community Schools has about 2000 students and 250 support
staff including 130 teachers. Students are provided Chromebooks,
while teachers use PCs and MacBooks. David Wolford, the Instructional
Tech at Baugo Community Schools is determined to implement a 100%
1:1 Chromebook policy. This parity is essential to enable students and
teachers to live in the same world when it comes to the technology
they use. Though the school did use Untangle, their inability to provide
identity-based reporting in place of IP-based reporting prompted them
to look for other solutions.
Identity-based reporting and active reporting were considered
important to help the school monitor bullying issues and intervene
Problems arose due to the gap between at-home monitoring and
parents’ understanding of at-home web filtering, which the previous
provider was unable to resolve.
Customer support from other competitors under consideration
included “ridiculous response time”, and complicated whitelisting
Cost was also a major factor in view of the transition to
Chromebooks and the 1:1 goal.
Monitoring beyond social media, by
detecting bullying threats over email
Identity-based reporting instead of IP based
reporting helps educators and parents zero
in on the problem areas
Blend of active monitoring, periodic alerts,
and social media activity monitoring can
enable quicker analysis of problem
