From aÂ schoolâ€™s perspective, the perfect solutionÂ proactively provides parents with a tool that gives them the information necessary to identify threats before they do harm, while never giving school administratorsÂ anyÂ access to the private activity of students online. ThisÂ sends a clear message toÂ parents that the schoolÂ recognizes the challenge and isÂ doing something to address it, while underscoring their ultimate responsibility as parents to identify minor issues beforeÂ they become major problems.
The perfect solution would also be simple to use, even passive, allowing even the busiestÂ parent to get the important information he or she needs, as soon as it happens.
MostÂ parents want to be responsible, but have no idea how to keep up with their kids online. They want to know if there is a problem without invading their kids’ privacy. They want to ignore all the innocentÂ stuff and only be alertedÂ when there is potentially dangerous or inappropriate activity.
SafeStudents OnlineÂ never requires parentsÂ to know their children’s passwords, and parentsÂ cannot log in to theirÂ accounts, post as them, or delete their friends. Our programÂ preserves the trust between parent and child by providing targeted monitoring and alerting that does not require the teen to relinquish control of his or her accounts.
