Provide parent access to see student activity
On-demand access to parents to see student's browsing activity (e.g top contents, top searches, browsing history, etc.) and teacher interventions (e.g., locked screens, closed tabs, etc.)
We’re happy to announce that GoGuardian Admin now has a new parent reporting app that enables your school to share a student’s online activity with their parent or guardian.

Seems to be U.S. only at this point.

You've been able to do this forever. Just put each kid in an OU and make the parent a staff with monitoring rights to their kids OU only.

One thing that I like about Securly, when it comes to the parent feature, is that the parents can restrict additional sites when their child is not on the school's network.
UH Tech commented
I could not wait...went to Securly last summer.
MICHAEL GURULE commented
Yes! I want to use this as soon as possible! Securely is calling me daily (I didn't know they already had this feature) and i don't want to move products if GoGuardian can provide this tool.
Kurt Willer commented
Securly offers this feature.
....How long should this take to review..it has been 3 years and I still do not see this available or even in the works.
Ryan Altschwager commented
We are being asked weekly to switch to Securely, which our neighboring districts have.
Brian Johnson commented
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...
I am a concerned parent and would like to speak to someone from GoGuardian in regard to information i received from the the school. Please contact me

Great, no trust whatsoever. No wonder kids hate their parents, we are all just on a leash, or at least an extending one, still choking.
Jennifer Cory commented
If parents could sign up to receive reports of their students online activity and receive them weekly or monthly that would be great!
Kurt Harms commented
Sounds like a great option for schools to choose to implement as they see fit. I know there are other apps that do this. It would be great if GoGuardian decided to make this part of their repertoire of features.
Bryan Veal commented
I am a little surprised this is still showing as only "Under Review", especially when other companies like Securely are offering it. Is there an update on this request from the engineers?
Marjie Starkey commented
How long does this need to be under review? This is a needed feature for our families. My children attend another school district and have Securly. I receive a report each week which tells me the sites my children have visited. Go Guardian needs this feature. It would help teachers out immensely.
Get this done. Parents should have control over what their minor aged children are doing online and therefore have the ability to keep them encouraged and accountable for their schoolwork.
Securly and Lightspeed Relay both offer features that allow parents some control or monitoring or support, I'm very surprised to find that GoGuardian doesn't already have something. As someone helping prepare for a new one to one initiative at my district, this definitely factors into decisions about a filtering solution.
Scott Anderson commented
taking way too long to implement this request feature... makes users not want to submit ideas. What is the vote threshold to make this happen?
Kristie Kruckman commented
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.
