With more remote learning taking place, we've got to ensure that each student is being looked at online just as well as they are when they are physically in the classroom.

According to a new survey from Lightspeed Systems, three-quarters of American parents are more worried than ever about their child's online safety due to distance learning. 72-percent of respondents shared they're worried about an increase in cyberbullying and 67 percent are worried about their child accessing inappropriate content.

And parents say they don't have enough time to monitor their child's online activity while they distance learn.

Lightspeed Systems, the nation's leader in online safety software, develops web filtering and online student safety technology used across thousands of school districts nationwide.

The Lightspeed web filters won't allow kids to intentionally or unintentionally go to inappropriate content.

Lightspeed uses artificial intelligence to monitor and analyze each student's online activity for signs of self-harm, suicide, cyberbullying, and other inappropriate behaviors.

When a potential threat is spotted, real-time alerts are sent to designated school personnel, including screenshots and other important information to drive appropriate intervention.

Parents should ask their child's school what filters they have in place, especially for remote learning and encourage a school to amp up their web filters.
