The Casa Grande Elementary School District is committed to providing our students with the most effective, educational web-based tools and applications. These tools and applications may include but are not limited to, Edmodo, ABCMouse, Khan Academy, ClassDojo, and others. In order to create accounts for our students, we must comply with federal regulations requiring parental consent as outlined below.
Our district utilizes several web-based sites and apps that are operated by third-party services. In order for our students to utilize these programs and services, basic student information must be provided to third parties. Under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), these web-based tools and applications must notify parents and obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting this information from children under 13 years of age. In addition, under this law, schools are permitted to consent to the collection of this information on behalf of their students. This eliminates the need for individual parental consent given directly to each website or app provider. For additional information regarding COPPA, please
How will this affect my child?
If you give permission, the school or your child’s teacher will be able to create accounts on educational websites and apps for your child to use at school. The apps and websites used vary in content, but include learning and practicing skills such as phonics, reading, writing, communication, math, and more.
Once signed and returned to your child's school, the form above will constitute verifiable parental consent for our schools to provide personal identifying information for your child that may consist of first name, last name, username, birth date, and, if applicable, email address in order to create accounts on third-party websites and apps. If you have questions regarding which third-party apps or websites will be utilized during the current school year, please contact your student’s teacher(s).
