We’ve created indicators and notifications to help schools and districts inform students when GoGuardian is being used on their device, including the following:
On devices where GoGuardian is being used, we prominently display the GoGuardian shield icon at the top of the Chrome browser to provide transparency to students at all times.
Schools can also provide students with a clear notification that indicates when GoGuardian Admin and/or Beacon are active on their school-managed account, school-managed device, and/or school system internet.
On devices where GoGuardian Teacher is being used, an additional icon in the browser bar indicates that a student is in an active GoGuardian Teacher session.
GoGuardian products comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Rule (COPPA), and all applicable state-level student data privacy laws.
Our Privacy Team is dedicated to providing industry-leading service and practices to protect student and school data privacy. If you have any specific questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org — we’re happy to answer them for you.
