BARK FOR SCHOOLS
As a parent, you probably know that keeping your kids from spending all day (and night!) on their devices can be a challenge, and you’re not alone. But finding a quick and easy way to manage screen time and filter the web doesn't have to be mission impossible — or cost an arm and a leg. That’s why we’ve partnered with the award-winning online safety company Bark to offer our district families free Bark Jr subscriptions (a $60/year value) for life!
Screen time features you won’t find anywhere else
Bark’s approach to screen time centers on the idea that different times of day call for different screen time rules. For example, when your kids are in school, you can block access to everything but educational sites. And at bedtime, you can allow apps to help them wind down for the evening. And because all kids deserve to blow off a little steam, you can designate free time hours just for play.
Bark Jr is also more than just screen time. A world-class web filter lets you select which websites your child can access on their devices. You can allow or block specific sites — or even whole categories like streaming services, online gaming, sexual content, and more.
Bark was created by a father of two who was looking for a solution for his own kids. Today, more than 5 million kids are protected by Bark all over the U.S. When you sign up for your free Bark Jr account, you’re not just getting a new app — you’re joining an incredible community of parents who trust Bark to help keep their kids safe and set healthy boundaries around tech use as they grow into young adults.
