SafeStudents Online is pleased to announce that Don Bosco Prep, a private Catholic college preparatory high school for young men, located in Ramsey, New Jersey, has selected SafeStudents Online to help its parents keep their children safe from some of the threats commonly found on social media.
Starting in fall 2017, Don Bosco will purchase the SafeStudents Online program on behalf of all parents of enrolled students. Parents will be able to monitor their childrenâ€™s social media activity for inappropriate or potentially dangerous posts and will receive alerts to help them take action when necessary.
SafeStudents Online balances protection with privacy to encourage collaboration and communication between parents and children. The advanced technology helps parents keep their children safe from online threats such as cyberbullying, online predators, and damaged reputations. Parents never need to ask for their childrenâ€™s passwords, and the online activity is monitored privately by parents, with the school having no access to the content.
â€śSince social media plays such a major role in the lives of our students, schools need to be proactive in facing the challenges that it presents. The SafeStudents Online Program is tremendous because it empowers parents to protect their children from the dangers of social media. The approach of this program makes the parents the first line of defense. The best part about it is that parents donâ€™t need to ask their children for passwords. Parents are only notified if something inappropriate is being posted.â€ť
