Third Party Applications
The use of web based educational resources has risen steadily over the past few years and are increasingly being used by teachers across the district to improve student learning outcomes. Our school and teachers make decisions about the best technology to meet the needs of our students. Sometimes it is beneficial for students to utilize services provided by third party web based providers.
Our school and district utilizes several computer software applications and web-based services, operated not by the school, but by third parties. These include contracted providers, websites, extensions, and apps that support educational programs. A complete list of these can be found on our school website.
In order for our students to use these programs and services, certain personal identifying information such as student name, student ID, age, and school email might be requested by third party. Under federal law entitled the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), these websites must provide parental notification and obtain consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13.

With your permission, the law allows schools to create and manage student accounts with third party. A list of these apps is listed below.
If you have any questions, please contact your student’s teacher.
