Parent Report Generator for school-issued devices

Parents to receive weekly report about child's online usage
Posted on 09/11/2018
Chromebook(SPS) - Sapulpa Public Schools has partnered with Lightspeed Systems on an online student safety solution to help track Internet usage by our students on their school-issued laptops.

Lightspeed will issue a report once a week that breaks down each 6th through 12th grade student’s activity on their Chromebook - search queries, blocked websites, top websites, and what time of day the child was on the Internet.

The time of day is broken down into four dayparts:

Before School - 5 to 8 a.m.
During School - 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
After School - 4 to 8 p.m.
Late Night - 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The Parent Report Generator will allow parents to better understand how their children are using their devices to learn, as well as being a conversation starter about online safety.

The report will be issued to parents via email each Sunday, beginning Sept. 16, and it will detail the activity from the past week.

Additionally, Sapulpa Public Schools is notified whenever an Internet search query, email, or Google Doc references cyberbullying or self-harm on a school-issued device. These alert notifications are another layer of student safety measures the district takes to help keep students safe.

FAQ FOR PARENTS

Why am I receiving an email from Relay?

The weekly email provides you with a snapshot of your child’s Internet usage on their school-issued device. The email can help you start a conversation with your child about what he/she is learning in school, online safety, and the amount of time he/she is online during different times of day or night.

What will the report look like?

The report will break down the time of day your child was on the Internet as well as show you the top searches, blocked websites, top websites and how much time your child is online each day. It comes via email from Relay <[email protected]>. An example of the report can be found by scrolling down the page.

What do I need to do to set this up?

The report pulls your email address from PowerSchool. If your contact information is up-to-date, you will receive the report each Sunday.

How do I update my email address?

Contact your child’s school and provide them with an updated email address.

I have not received the report yet?

The reports will only be emailed to parents of students in 6th through 12th grades each Sunday. If you have not received a report, check your Spam or Junk folder. If you don’t see the email from Relay there, contact your child’s school and provide them with an updated email address.

I have multiple kids. How will I know which report is whose?

You will receive an individual email for each child. The Subject Line in the email will read - How <Student’s Name> Used the Internet this Week. Remember, the reports are only generated for 6th through 12th-grade students.

Who else sees the information contained in the emailed report?

The network administrator at Sapulpa Public Schools has access to all reports.

An activity you deem concerning, please contact your child’s principal. For life-threatening emergencies, call 911.
