GoGuardian is used to provide content filtering to students both at school and at home any time that they sign in with a BASD Google/email account. GoGuardian only works with student accounts.
In addition to providing a safeguard for students, GoGuardian provides teachers with useful tools for instruction, especially for remote learning. With GoGuardian, teachers can view the content on student screens, open tabs for students (replacement for Share to Classroom), close student tabs, chat, present content, and host video sessions.
Students will see the image shown below any time that a site is blocked by GoGuardian. If access to the site is needed for educational purposes, the student should let the teacher know. Teachers have access to a form to request that a site is blocked or unblocked.
