Bark for Schools+ reviewers can customize notifications

With Bark for Schools+, the Bark Super Admin can assign alerts by category to other Reviewers. This allows certain Reviewers to only receive alert categories they’re established to handle, such as self-harm and depression alerts going to counselors and violence and bullying alerts going to school safety officers. You can even restrict their alerts to pertain to particular groups, like only allowing a Reviewer to see alerts for their school or grade level.

Bark for Schools+ is completely optional to schools. The value of Bark for Schools+ comes with 24/7 text / call emergency response to alerts, workflow improvements, and image removal. Receiving email alerts on worrisome content for student accounts is free for both products, as is Parent Portal. Parent Portal allows parents to share in the responsibility of the issues detected on their child's student account after hours or 24/7 based on your settings.
