GoGuardian Parent App

Thanks to our wonderful community for supporting MCSD’s SPLOST initiatives, we are at the forefront of technology integration to enhance our personalized learning approach. We take pride in achieving a 1:1 ratio with over 30,000 Chromebooks actively utilized by students daily. GoGuardian, a web-based application, has seamlessly integrated into our instructional management strategy.

MCSD is pleased to offer our parents/guardians access to the GoGuardian Parent mobile App. The app is designed to help keep parents/guardians aware of their children’s activity on MCSD-issued Chromebooks and provide them with additional controls during out-of-school hours.

What is included in this app:

  • Top 5 overview of a student's online activity
  • Any teacher interventions related a student's online activity
  • 30-day overview of a student's online activity
  • Ability to block websites on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours (4:00 pm to 7:00 am M-F, and all weekend)
  • Ability to pause internet access on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours, either on-demand or at a scheduled time
Parents/Guardians can access the app:

  1. Download the app
    1. Download via Apple Store
    2. Download via Google Play Store
  2. After the app is successfully downloaded and installed, open it up and enter the email address registered with the school (this email needs to match the email used in Infinite Campus/Parent Portal) Note: If you forgot your registered email address, please reach out to your school administrator.
  3. 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.
Through the use of this app, we hope to encourage more open and honest conversations between parents/guardians and students that will result in safer practices and responsible browsing habits.
