SafeStudents Online is pleased to announce that St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School, a Catholic K-8 school in the Archdiocese of Denver, has selected SafeStudents Online to help its parents keep their children safe from some of the threats commonly found on social media.
Starting in spring 2016, St. Catherine will introduce the SafeStudents Online program to parents of all students in grades 5-8. Parents will be able to monitor their children’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 children’s passwords, and the online activity is monitored privately by parents, with the school having no access to the content.
“Social media has provided unsurpassed communication and networking tools to today’s generations, but with the convenience comes risk. Students can reach out and befriend one another like never before using social networking, but the media constantly reminds us of the tremendous risks associated with these versatile tools. SafeStudentsOnline provides a tool whereby parents can participate in the protection of their children without violating the privacy of passwords and direct account access. SafeStudentsOnline provides an avenue through which parents can have healthy conversations with children about internet safety and easily be more aware of threats or inappropriate communications through social networking. I am excited that St. Catherine of Siena School can provide this tool to contribute to the safety and responsible use of social networking for our families.”
