Student Device Monitoring for Families

To provide families with awareness of their student’s laptop activity, the district has implemented apParent Online the parent app companion to AssistX Education’s Class Policy teacher application.

This software allows families access to the following features during non-school hours:

  1. View screen images of your student’s district-issued laptop
  2. Remotely lock and unlock your student’s device
  3. View the past 24 hours of your student’s online browsing history
  4. Schedule screen lock with auto release
  5. Schedule screen recording with time lapse playback

While we are in temporary remote/hybrid learning, parents have access to the below monitoring features during school hours. Restriction features during school hours are accessible only to teachers to ensure students will not be blocked from resources needed for classwork.

  1. View screen images of your student’s district-issued laptop
  2. View the past 24 hours of your student’s online browsing history

To get started:

  1. You should have received an invitation from the district. If not, please contact us at parenthelp@bsd405.org
  2. Install apParent Online for Android or apParent Online for iOS (iPhone/iPad)
  3. Login to the parent app with the login info from the opt-in email to begin managing and monitoring your student’s laptop

Important notes:

  • School hours are specific to each school’s schedule and you will see that reflected for your student in the apParent app
  • This application is not enabled for district-issued iPads
