Welcome to Bruneau-Grand View!

At Bruneau-Grand View Joint School District, we want to see “Every Child Learning.” Located in the southwestern corner of Idaho, our small, tight-knit community is dedicated to the success of every child. Involved parents, caring citizens, and high-achieving students are just a few of the ingredients in our recipe to success.

We welcome you to our online home, where you can learn more about our exceptional schools, our student athletics programs, and all the special events that make our district stand out from the rest. We welcome community and parent involvement. Find out how you can help!

Personal Electronic Devices in Schools and Google

Dear Parents,

Over the past year the administration and school board have been concerned about the district’s internet security and how effective it has been. We have also had stakeholders share their concerns at monthly school board meetings and have had discussions primarily among the Rimrock staff about internet and cell phone use during the school day. The school district does have a policy that outlines personal electronic devices in our schools (3998, found under the policy link on our website). In this policy, acceptable and unacceptable uses are defined for the purpose of reducing classroom distractions and reducing student conflicts and electronic bullying. I want to remind our families that the Rimrock student handbook also describes the expectations for the possession and use of students who bring cell phones to school (See page 14, RR Student Handbook, also located on the website under dropdown “School Info” and “Rimrock”). 

The school district uses Google as our main internet platform. Working in partnership with Google Workspace for Education, they have informed us they will be locking down sharing permissions for students under 18 years of age, beginning in November. This is part of a much larger security initiative around underage students which Google has been implementing for the past year. What that means is beginning in November, student users that we designate as “under 18” won’t be able to access sharing features in Google Photos at school, including:

  • They won’t be able to share or receive new photos and videos within Google Photos.
  • Photos and videos they’ve previously shared with others in the Google Photos app will become private to themselves.
  • They won’t be able to access photos and videos that others have shared with them in Google Photos unless they’ve previously saved this content to their own libraries.
  • They won't be able to participate in private conversations in Google Photos where photos and videos are shared.

Jeff Blaser, Superintendent
