GoGuardian is our student internet filter for LEAD Moline. More information regarding LEAD Moline and what GoGuardian has to offer can be found on the EdTech Website.

- SysCloud Google Compliance - Login with your Google Account from anywhere
SysCloud has two functions built into its platform. The first is a complete backup of all student/staff accounts for up to 365 days, which is managed by EdTech. The second is a compliance monitor to flag student accounts for objectionable content, cyberbullying, and life threats, all of which are viewable by administrators.
SysCloud will email flagged alerts to specific administrators if the event is labeled “high,” and administrators will get weekly email summaries of all flagged events. The specific events can be accessed via the links in the email. Click here to access more resources on SysCloud reporting and monitoring.
***The emails from SysCloud can be a lot depending on the size of your school. If you would like help setting up a filter so that SysCloud (or any application) notifications are labeled separately from your Inbox, just submit a ticket by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for help!
