Bark helps parents keep their children safer on their smartphones across social media, text message, and email. But what’s keeping them safe on their school-issued networks, accounts, and devices?
Enter Bark for Schools, the award-winning technology that monitors school email accounts, G Suite apps, and school-issued Chromebooks. Bark for Schools monitors for cyberbullying, school shooting threats, suicidal ideation, and other potentially harmful issues. We offer Bark for Schools at no cost to schools as a way to give back to our communities.
Today, we’re excited to announce that Bark for Schools now supports Microsoft Office 365, opening the door for countless more schools and communities. Bark for Schools can now continually monitor Office 365 applications like Outlook, OneDrive, and OneNote and alert when potentially harmful issues are detected.
Want to get Bark into your child’s school? Here’s a sample email you can send to your principal, superintendent, or other school administrator:
Dear Principal / Superintendent / IT Director / Board of Education Member,
Bark is a company keeping millions of children safer on school-issued technology and I wanted to know if our school could sign up for this free program. Bark monitors schools’ email accounts, G Suite apps, and Microsoft Office 365 apps for potentially harmful issues and alerts administrators the minute they come up. This service has detected school shooting threats, bullying incidents, suicidal ideation, and more.
