Bark for Schools
Monitoring of District issued devices and accounts for student safety is critically important to SMUHSD, which is why we use Bark for Schools to help us protect our students both online and in real life while using our school-issued accounts. Bark monitors for signs of potential issues like: cyberbullying, suicidal ideation, sexual predators, threats of violence, and more. When possible dangers arise on school-issued accounts, Bark for Schools sends SMUHSD alerts so we can address the situation in a timely manner. These alerts also give us insights that help us promote the wellness of the entire student body. We strive to help keep our students safe online.
