SafeStudents Online is pleased to announce that Preston High School, a private, college-preparatory school for young women, located in the Bronx, in the Archdiocese of New York, has selected SafeStudents Online to help its parents keep their children safe from some of the threats commonly found on social media.
Starting in September 2016, parents of incoming Preston freshmen will have access to the SafeStudents Online program at no additional cost. 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 cloud-based solution 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€śAs school administrators and guidance counselors, we often play catch up when it comes to inappropriate online behavior. When we inform parents, they are frequently unaware of the behavior. Safe Students Online is a wonderful way for parents to stay informed, and we appreciate it that it helps us partner with parents to maintain the safety of our students.â€ť
