A Comprehensive Safety Solution at No Cost to Schools
Bark for Schools provides a world-class online safety solution for K-12 schools in the U.S. Our comprehensive solution comprises G Suite and Office 365 student account monitoring, Chrome/Chromebook monitoring, and a web content filter that categorizes and blocks harmful and inappropriate domains. Combined with Parent Portal, school communities now have all of the tools they need to help keep their students safe online.
Bark for Schools monitors G Suite and Office 365 accounts and alerts your administration to digital dangers. With world-class support available 7 days a week, you can combine account monitoring and web filtering for a robust safety solution that will remain free forever.
Web filtering with Bark for Schools helps keep your students on track. Free and available to all of our partners, these features block games, pornography, streaming services, and other content that may undermine a positive learning environment. Schools can manage their filtering in a way that works for them.
Schools can enlist the support of parents and guardians to monitor their children’s accounts after school hours, during weekends, and over holidays. These are times when students still use their school-issued accounts, but your administration may not be available to respond to urgent alerts. Parent Portal is also completely free.
Every Wednesday and Thursday at 2pm ET, you can attend a webinar to learn more.

Keeping up with student activities takes lots of time and energy. Bark for Schools will do the heavy lifting for busy administrations.Connect my school now
With the money that would have gone to Bark, we’re able to bring in real-world people to communicate with the kids and talk to them about their experiences ... Money invested in bringing these people in was actually starting conversations, enabling teachers to connect with students when they may not have had that opportunity before because it just never came up.
What makes your company invaluable is that you continue to grow and adapt to the real world, especially in the K-12 space, to make sure that your product is on the leading edge ... It’s good to see a company that continues to care, and also grows the product to accommodate the students to keep them as safe as possible at all times.
Bark for Schools is the real deal. We didn’t have any sort of content scanning before getting Bark. Within a few days, Bark found multiple issues that would have gone unnoticed if we hadn’t been scanning Gmail and Hangouts. When an issue arose that could have been life-threatening for one of our students, a Bark team member called our school to help us take correct action.
I’m a fan of anything that provides better insight into what’s going on with students, and the fact that Bark can do that for free is even better.
Today’s students face greater dangers than those that came before them. External threats like cyberbullying and school shootings have them on edge, and threats like self-harm and suicidal ideation confront them from within. Bark and Safe and Sound Schools are teaming up to combat this problem, knowing we can make a huge impact.
Founded by Michele Gay and Alissa Parker after both of them lost a child in the devastating Sandy Hook shooting, Safe and Sound Schools provides research-based tools and resources for crisis prevention, response, and recovery to help protect every school and every student, every day.
