Online Privacy

You can use this page to learn more about the importance of digital privacy in this ever-changing digital world.



Online privacy is more important than ever! We must keep our students safe.

As a school district, we must adhere to two laws that help maintain student safety online: the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the Family Educational Right to Privacy Act (FERPA). These laws apply to all websites and software used in the classroom. This includes iPad apps, browser extensions, and various other online resources. Examples: (site), Osmo Word (app), Read&Write (extension), and Flubaroo (G-Suite add-on). Here's a brief video from the Department of Education that talks about FERPA and why online privacy is so important.
