Bark for Schools
Irwin County Schools uses Bark for Schools to help us monitor school-issued accounts for signs of digital dangers. When potential issues like cyberbullying, suicidal ideation, and threats of violence arise, Bark sends us a notification. Parents and guardians can benefit from receiving these alerts, as well. Bark for Schools is free for both our school and for you.
Get Alerts With the Free Parent Portal
Kids use their school-issued accounts both at school and at home, and families are often in a better position to respond to urgent alerts after hours, on weekends, and during breaks. These are times when administration may not be available in the event of an emergency. By providing the information needed below, you will receive an invitation to create your free account for the Bark for Schools Parent Portal.
