This school year, students will be using four additional applications: CodeMonkey, Edpuzzle, Padlet, and Quizlet as complementary education tools that will allow them to code, create virtual ‘bulletin’ boards, use learning tools and games, watch video lessons in class or at home and complete assignments related to these lessons. The use of this web-based software and applications is intended to further engage students and also to better identify each of their learning processes.
Student accounts and information related to them is stored completely privately and is only accessible to applications listed above and your children’s teachers.
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) protects the online privacy of children under the age of 13 and requires web-based service providers as CodeMonkey, Edpuzzle, Padlet, and Quizlet to obtain parental consent prior to the collection, use, and disclosure of that child's personal information. Due to COPPA’s requirements and just like any other web- or cloud-based educational tool, CodeMonkey, Edpuzzle, Padlet, and Quizlet require that schools obtain parental consent to set up accounts on students’ behalf and allow students under the age of 13 to access and use those accounts.
If your child is under 13, we need your consent to create your child’s student account on their behalf. Please sign below and return the slip as soon as possible!
