Pasco School District views the use of electronic resources as central to the delivery of its educational program. By providing each student a laptop computer to use at school and at home, Pasco School District intends to enable an engaging, collaborative, self‐directed, and empowering learning environment. It is the District's goal that students will safely learn, share, collaborate, think critically and solve problems to succeed in a modern, digital world.
Qustodio - Student Device Monitoring for Parents
Pasco School District offers parents an application to monitor activity on their child’s school-issued computer. The application is called Qustodio and it is available to parents of middle and high school students. Parents can view device activity that occurs outside of school hours and perform functions such as pausing the internet on their child’s device. In addition, parents receive two free Qustodio licenses to monitor personal devices such as phones or tablets. Learn more about Qustodio in this short video.
Setting up your account is easy!
- Visit the Qustodio website
- Enter your email address that your school has on file and verify your account
- Done! You should see your child's device immediately and be able to view their historical activity.
After setting up your account, you can download the Qustodio phone app for monitoring on the go!
