Parents/Guardians urged to check students’ online communications while school is out

Dear Parents and Guardians:

During the school year, our online student safety management system, called Gaggle, reviews student-generated documents for words and phrases that trigger a concern for student safety. Please note that Gaggle will not be active from June 27th through August 19th, and documents will not be reviewed by Campbell Union School District staff for words and phrases that may be troubling.

For students retaining district-owned Chromebooks during the summer, please also note that the devices will still have CIPA-compliant web-filtering to protect students from browsing harmful or malicious sites.

Parental supervision is recommended, as always.
