Internet Filtering & Technology Involvement
Cushing Public Schools is partnering with Securly to provide an online student safety solution for students in grades PK-12. Families with email addresses on file with the district will be automatically enrolled and will receive email reports from Securly. Parents can now view their children's activity across educational sites and time syncs, in-school and at-home across all of their school-owned devices. All of this is delivered via beautifully designed dashboards and e-mail reports!
Weekly activity emails provide snapshots of your child’s Internet use while on a school-owned or issued device. The emails parents receive can help start conversations around various topics, including education, online safety, and peer pressure. Parents can also customize what their children can do and see on their school-owned devices. They can allow or deny access to specific sites and categories while the child is at home.

Student Monitoring Services
Cushing Public Schools subscribes to two monitoring services to monitor student G Suite accounts for various types of inappropriate content. The services which are used for this monitoring are Bark and Securly. Bark is a separate service from the Securly service mentioned above, but we believe it is worth having a safety net to provide the best solution we possibly can to protect our students. All securly information is provided above and an introduction to Bark is available below.
