Derby school software aims to combat cyber-bullying and suicidal thoughts

DERBY, Kan. (KWCH) Parents, a new program could help you keep better track of what your child’s doing on-line and even help stop possible cyber-bullying or suicidal thoughts.

Gina Thraikill, a Derby parent of three knows the challenges that come with keeping an eye on her children’s online and social media use.

“I know I try to monitor my kids but its a full time job, because there’s so much of it and so many things I don’t know about that I think a lot of parents don’t know about, hidden apps and that kind of thing,” Thraikill said.

Monday, the Derby school board will vote to install Securly, a new, free program on middle schooler’s Chromebooks.

Derby district communication director Katie Carlson said the program monitors and alerts school administrators whenever its filters find words or searches indicating cyber-bullying or a student wanting to self-harm.

In Columbia Falls, A Shaken School District Moves Forward from Cyber Threats

In a career spanning more than 40 years, as a teacher, principal and superintendent across Montana and Alaska, Steve Bradshaw has experienced the gamut of interactions and situations in the world of public education.

But nothing like the situation that played out last month across the Flathead Valley.

“In all honesty, it’s the first time in my career that I’ve ever moved a gun to my bedroom,” Bradshaw, the Columbia Falls school superintendent, said.

“I hate to put it that way. I’ve been in some tough situations in different school districts, but I never have moved a gun to my bedroom. This time the threat was serious enough.”

In mid-September, a series of ominous text messages directed toward Bradshaw and others escalated overnight into violent, graphic cyber threats targeting the valley’s schools, students and families. The bizarre saga shook the community and forced the closure of more than 30 schools across
