Additional Notes about COPPA:
COPPA does not preclude schools from acting as intermediaries between operators and parents in the notice and consent process, or from serving as the parent’s agent in the process of collecting personal information online from students in the school context when parents have provided permission for student internet use. CPSD’s use and sharing of student data is solely for education purposes.
CPSD uses a variety of software systems in the classroom, including some that are hosted outside the district’s facilities in “the cloud”. When used appropriately and thoughtfully, these tools can help create a rich, flexible and engaging learning environment for district students. Additionally, experience accessing materials in the cloud in a responsible and effective manner is important part of students becoming good digital citizens.
CPSD supports COPPA and requires websites the district uses to adhere to this law. It is important that all CPSD staff members who work with children be aware of and follow COPPA and other state and federal regulations related to student internet access and related data use.
