a leading education technology SaaS provider, today announced that Richland
School District has deployed GoGuardian
Admin to provide safe and secure internet usage both in and out of
the classroom for its one-to-one (1:1) Chromebook initiative and STEM
“The school-owned Chromebook take-home program is designed to give our
secondary education students the ability to independently access
instructional content and work collaboratively on group projects
wherever and whenever works best for them. This is an especially
important component of our STEM learning focus,” said Mike Leseberg,
executive director of information technology of Richland School
District. “However, we know that while the internet provides an enhanced
learning opportunity, it also comes with the risk of inappropriate or
distracting content. At Richland, student safety is our priority and we
are very confident that GoGuardian will filter all harmful content
whether our students are at school or off campus.”
In August 2018, the school district initiated a take-home program for
Chromebooks with all of its secondary education students, grades 6-12.
However, the school’s original filtering tool was unable to support the
school Chromebooks when off campus, so Richland School District deployed
GoGuardian Admin to actively filter and monitor content wherever the
student’s device is located.
GoGuardian will help support Richland’s 14,000 students, encompassing
the communities of Richland and West Richland in the Tri-Cities of
Washington State. Richland launched innovative programming and a 1:1
technology initiative to support the school district’s STEM career
development for its students. With GoGuardian Admin, the 1:1 initiative
is able to safely put a digital device in every student’s hand and help
support teachers and administrators learning and safety initiatives in
and out of the classroom.
