Privacy-first tools to keep our students safe and secure

As a middle and high school in Palo Alto, CA, Castilleja was well aware students were losing valuable learning experiences to remote learning. To begin re-opening as safely and quickly as possible, they evaluated numerous alternatives to inefficient paper-based or verbal screening. Castilleja selected CVKey's digital app to keep students’ and faculty’s information private and secure and keep people moving through safety checkpoints without any bottlenecks.

“CVKey was an easy choice for us. We needed a health screening solution that would allow for a safe and quick entry onto campus. The color-coding was easy to identify who was cleared and who was not, it allowed for our staff to remain distanced from the students, and most importantly, it was a solution that provided privacy.”

Partnering to open communities safely

CVKey's privacy-first set of tools, combined with an agile partnership with the CVKey team helped Castilleja set up, train and deploy our COVID-19 screening solution in record time.

Why did you select CVKey?
CVKey was an easy choice for us. We needed a health screening solution that would allow for a safe and quick entry onto campus. The color-coding was easy to identify who was cleared and who was not, it allowed for our staff to remain distanced from the students, and most importantly, it was a solution that provided privacy.

Is privacy important and why?
Privacy is extremely important to us, both in dealing with minors and health information. We don’t want anyone else to have access to this data. It should belong to the user and the user only.

What success have you had in meeting your screening objectives?
Our campus is in a residential neighborhood where traffic flow is of huge concern. One of our biggest fears with needing to do health screens upon entry was that we would end up creating congestion down the streets. We didn’t skip a beat in our normal drop-off procedures thanks to CVKey. Our community was able to pre-screen their health status from home and then verify their status with a greeter at the door. It is also incredibly user-friendly on both the user and administrative sides. Administrators were able to update the app with ongoing changes in COVID safety measures, and users were able to quickly see what points needed to be considered for clearance. Furthermore, it took much of the responsibility off of the administrators for denying entry. Users followed the instructions provided by the app based on the user’s inputs and they stayed home until they were cleared. It eliminated a fear about safety that was looming over our community as we prepared for our campus re-entry.

What advice do you have for other schools that might be thinking about using an app for screening? 
CVKey is the solution! For safe and easy health screening, CVKey is the way to go!

How did you roll out CVKey successfully?
The CVKey Team made our rollout easy. They scheduled time to meet with our administrators initially to ensure we were successful. We then were able to create a simple screen recording demo to send to our community with instructions on the app’s use (see below). It was as simple as sending out an email to our community telling them we were using CVKey, and everyone showed up day one ready to go. Since using CVKey, we haven’t had to think twice about our partnership with them. Every day starts with CVKey and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
