        This is a fantastic idea.. was just coming here to propose this very thing after dealing with a parent who wants to see what their child is doing. It would not only decrease administrative work, with parents being able to monitor and discipline children but it would increase transparency and help with the 1:1 "fear" factor we get...

        If parents could sign up to receive reports of their students online activity and receive them weekly or monthly that would be great!

        Ditto to this comment:

        We would really like a way to add a parent alert for weekends and holidays, as well as a parent report that could be subscribed to by parents.
        We would like to see an option that parents could also get notified when there is a serious flag on a student account.

        Lightspeed Relay is working on an automated parent report generator. GoGuardian needs to offer this as well.

        Really need this idea as I work at a smaller school and I'm actually a full time science teacher/part time IT dept. I am starting to get overwhelmed with parent requests for their child's activity online.
        Been with GoGUardian for about two years now and overall have enjoyed the product but really looking at other options due to the constant parental pressure for this option.

        Just like guardian summaries in Classroom this would be fantastic to pre-populate the emails and this could automatically be sent out to parents. Yes please!

        I would love a quick history report to be downloaded or even better an email to send directly to parent's email address.

        I'm getting pressure from parents as neighboring districts have this function from a competitor who is offering it "free".

        This idea has been wanted for almost two years now and there still has been nothing done about it. Almost any other ideas out there with over 40-50 votes some action has been taken.

        We are coming up to the end of our three-year agreement and I am being forced to move to a different filtering software because GoGuardian does not automatically send home to parents a bi-weekly snapshot of what their children are doing on their devices.

        I like GoGuardian but am prepared to switch to Securly for the 2018-19 school year.

        So I just deleted my previous comment and would like to revise my thought. The one feature I would really like to see is for parents to set a bedtime for their childs chromebook

      • Christine Flanagan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Would love to see this integrated with our already integrated SIS or LMS so that parents don't have another login. We currently use PowerSchool and Canvas.

        +1

        If we provide a parent portal, also allow them (with separate parent ID) whitelist domains that their children may visit that might otherwise be blocked by the district.

      • Ruth Davis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just curious if there is an update to this suggestion. We like the features Go Guardian offers, but Securly has that one piece that GoGuardian does not have. Parent requests come in regularly and the option we can offer them now is the Open DNS which is not very user friendly. We would be willing to beta test as well.

      • Gary Lambert commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        As an IT Admin, we get parents requesting reports from us ALL THE TIME. If they could see this themselves, we would start conversations between parents and students instead of them always starting at the school level. Transparency is key to fostering trust relationships between school districts and the school community. A GoGuardian Parent Portal would be one more way to make this happen. Please consider this. We be more than happy to BETA test for you @ Beekmantown CSD. :-)

        This is becoming more common with other K-12 applications like Google Classroom and Schoology. It is something we are also hearing more from parents.
