What is a Chromebook?
What is "the Cloud?"
CHILD INTERNET PROTECTION ACT (CIPA)
As a school district that receives federal e-rate money, the school is required by the Federal Communications Commission CIPA (Children's Internet Protection Act) to have technology measures (web filter) and policies in place that protect students from harmful materials including those that are obscene and pornographic. This also means that student email is filtered. Mail containing harmful content from inappropriate sites will be blocked.
CHILDREN'S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT (COPPA)
COPPA applies to commercial companies and limits their ability to collect personal information from children under the age of 13. By default, Google advertising is turned off for Apps for Education users. No personal student information is collected for commercial purposes. The school's use of student information is solely for educational purposes.
FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT (FERPA)
FERPA protects the privacy of student education records and gives parents the rights to review student records.
- Under FERPA, schools may disclose directory information (name, phone, address, grade level, etc.) but parents may request that the school not disclose this information.
- The school will not publish confidential education records (grades, student ID #, etc.) for public viewing on the Internet.
- The school may publish student work and photos for public viewing but will not publish student's last names or other personally identifiable information.
- Parents may request that photos, names and general directory information about their children not be published.
- Parents have the right at any time to investigate the contents of their child's email and Apps for Education files.
