Bay City School Board Adds Gaggle To Supplement District Computer Network

Bay City school district Superintendent Stephen Bigelow talks with trustee Carrie Cepeda after Monday's school board meeting

A supplement to the Bay City school district’s computer network known as Gaggle will start immediately.

Superintendent Stephen Bigelow says Gaggle has an algorithm to detect concerning student language like threats of suicide or violence and then notify administrators who can address the situation. He explained the program will be free for the rest of this year, but will cost the district $41,000 next year. Bigelow promised school board trustees who voted for the system Monday, April 8 that he’ll update them with regular reports on its progress.
