November 20, 2020: Care Solace

Dear Romoland School District Families,

Romoland School District fosters a culture that promotes the health, safety, and well-being of students, parents, guardians, and staff. In an effort to continuously support this commitment, the district has partnered with Care Solace. 

Care Solace is an online resource with a live 24/7 concierge meant to assist individuals in finding local mental health-related programs and counseling services. Care Solace is an additional tool for school staff and families to connect with community-based mental healthcare resources and providers. Their proprietary care navigation system taps into a vast database of mental healthcare resources to find carefully vetted local therapists and programs in minutes. 

School district families and staff may access Care Solace services in two ways:

  1. Call (888) 515-0595 to speak with someone from your Concierge team
    • Representatives are standing by to take your call or email 24/7
  2. Visit your custom district link: www.caresolace.com/rsd 
    • Answer ten easy questions to receive an extensive list of referrals to applicable care providers. Care Solace takes into account all types of private insurance including Medi-Cal, Medicaid, and Medicare, and those that have no insurance. The platform also filters by age, gender, zip code, and special request. 

Care Solace is now available for use by district families and staff at no cost. Care Solace does not require a name, address, phone number, or date of birth. All information entered on the Care Solace tool is completely confidential and securely stored. 

Please note, this service is an optional resource available by choice and is not mandatory in any way. Care Solace is not an emergency response service or mental health services provider. In the event of a life-threatening emergency, please call 9-1-1 or the National Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255.

October 1, 2020: GoGuardian Notification

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Romoland School District has added an online service called GoGuardian Teacher to help keep students engaged and focused on learning during class time. 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.

How are we using GoGuardian?

We have chosen GoGuardian Teacher services to:

  • Help students stay “scholarly” and more focused when learning online
  • Help assess students’ progress towards class assignments
  • Facilitate communication between teachers and students during class time

When and how does GoGuardian operate?

GoGuardian operates on our school’s managed Google accounts when students are logged into a school Chromebook with their school email address. With this tool, teachers can do things like push out online content to all students at the same time, keep students focused on learning by remotely closing other distracting tabs, and even limit students to only specific websites, if needed, during class time. Teachers can only use GoGuardian Teacher with students in their classes, and only during school hours Monday through Friday.

What are the school’s responsibilities?

Romoland School District selected GoGuardian services to help our students stay safer and more scholarly online. We will work with students during class time to help teach them digital responsibility and safety. Additionally, we will train teachers about how to operate GoGuardian and about our policies and procedures to help protect student privacy.

What are my parental/guardian and student’s responsibilities?

We ask that students use their school-managed Google accounts and school-managed devices for educational purposes within the boundaries of Romoland School District’s Responsible Use Policy.

We encourage you to discuss with your student the rules for appropriate internet usage and reinforce lessons of digital citizenship and safety. We also highly encourage you to report to us any potential cyberbullying or other sensitive issues.

How does GoGuardian help protect my student’s privacy?

To help your student remain scholarly and safe online, GoGuardian collects certain personally identifiable information about your student. GoGuardian has consulted with privacy experts, participates in privacy organizations, is a proud signatory of the Student Privacy Pledge, and has been awarded certifications by iKeepSafe for complying with both Family Education Rights and Privacy Act and California student privacy laws. For more detailed information about GoGuardian, you may visit GoGuardian’s websiteTrust & Privacy Center, and view GoGuardian’s Product Privacy Policy.
