Located in North Texas, Wichita Falls Independent School District (WFISD) serves 14,100 students across 26 campuses. A Gaggle partner since 2018, we recently spoke with Superintendent Michael Kuhrt to dive into how he utilizes our student safety platform in his district. Watch the video to learn more about his experience with Gaggle.



Since implementing Gaggle, WFISD has used the student safety platform to intervene in about 10 different student situations that could have turned into crises if they hadn’t been alerted about the issue. This proactive approach to student safety has helped WFISD address issues dealing with self-harm, bullying, inappropriate relationships, and other concerning situations.

“We take care of students, and Gaggle helps us do that.”
Michael Kuhrt, Superintendent, Wichita Falls Independent School District
