GoGuardian Parent App: Giving Parents Filtering Controls at Home
GCS has granted parents access to GoGuardian Parent, a mobile app designed to provide parents/guardians control over their student's online activity on school-managed devices and accounts while at home. The GoGuardian Parent app provides you with an additional set of internet controls that you can set for out-of-school hours.
What is included in the GoGuardian Parent app:
- Ability to block websites on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours
- Ability to pause internet access on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours, either on-demand or at a scheduled time
To access the app, please follow the below instructions:
- Download the app
- After the app is successfully downloaded and installed, open it up and enter the parent email address registered in PowerSchool.
Note: If you forgot your registered email address or haven’t supplied one, please reach out to your school’s data manager to get that information updated.
- Login/Check Email: Check your email on your phone for a link to log in to the app. Tap the "Verify your email", and it will take you straight to the app.
Note: If you don't have access to your email through the device you used to log in, tap on "Login with verification code", and copy and paste the verification code from the email into the app.
We look forward to learning with you and your child this year!
