GoGuardian Parent App Information
October 29, 2020
Dear Parent or Guardian,
To help keep your child safer and more academically focused when online, La Center School District is excited to offer the GoGuardian Parent App to give parents more visibility into their student’s online activities. While we think this app will be of great value to many families, its use is optional. It may be helpful to know that over 10,000 other schools use GoGuardian to protect 5.5 million students across the world, and the Global Educator Institute has endorsed the GoGuardian Teacher product.
What does the GoGuardian Parent App do?
The user interface and illustrative charts quickly communicate student online activity so that parents can see their student’s online activity. Parents also have content filtering controls and the capability of pausing their student’s internet connection so they can better manage their student’s device usage at home.
How are we using GoGuardian?
To help protect students against harmful and inappropriate online material.
To help students stay more academically focused when learning online.
When and how does GoGuardian operate?
GoGuardian’s web-based services operate whenever a student is logged into Chrome or a Chromebook with their school email address. As a district, we have chosen settings for GoGuardian that maximize parental controls. The settings you create for your student will be in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
What are the parents’/guardians’ and student’s responsibilities?
Students are responsible for using their school-managed Google accounts and school-managed devices for educational purposes and staying compliant with the district’s Acceptable Use Policy.
When a student is off campus, parents are responsible for supervising their student’s internet access and usage. We encourage discussing appropriate internet usage with your student and support parental reinforcement of their digital citizenship and internet safety lessons. We also strongly recommend that you report potential cyberbullying or other online safety concerns to us.

PARENTS & PROGRAMS
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am excited about the new school year and look forward to working with our students and staff to make it a great experience. This is my sixth year as principal at La Center Middle School, after working at La Center High School for eight years as the associate principal. It’s going to be so much fun! My background includes a bachelors degree in health education from the University of Oregon and a masters degree in educational leadership from Washington State University.
La Center Middle School is a place where learning environments are student centered, supportive and conducive to producing self-reliant, life-long learners. We strive to create learning environments where students can take ownership of their learning and be an active participant in the learning process.
We support a whole child approach, and value the balance of developing academic achievements alongside the personal and social skills necessary to be a happy and contributing member of a rapidly changing and diverse society.
You are welcome to come in or call for anything. Your continued support is vital for the success of our students and we welcome your feedback. La Center is such a great community. We all look forward to working with you and your families.
