COPPA & CIPA Compliance

Greenville R-II School District is committed to providing students with the most effective web-based tools and applications for learning.  In order to do so, we abide by federal regulations that require parental consent as outlined below.

 

As required by the Child Internet Protection Act (CIPA), Greenville R-II has technology measures and policies in place which protect students from harmful materials. Email and websites are filtered so that content from inappropriate sites is blocked.  For more information on CIPA, please visit: http://www.fcc.gov/guides/childrens-internet-protection-act.

 

Our district utilizes several computer software applications and web-based services operated by third parties. In   order for our students to use these programs and services, certain basic information (generally student name, username, and email address) must be provided to the website operator. These include Google Apps for Education (GAFE), Prezi, Animoto, Custom Typing, and similar educational programs. A complete list of the programs with the privacy policy for each can be found on our district website:  COPPA & CIPA Compliance.  Under the federal Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) law, these websites must notify parents and obtain parental consent before collecting information from children under 13 years of age. For more information on COPPA, please visit  http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/coppafaqs.shtm.

 

The law permits schools, such as those in Greenville R-II, to consent to the collection of this information on behalf of all of its students, thereby eliminating the need for individual parental consent given directly to each website provider. When email addresses are utilized, it is important to note that students in grades K-6 can only email Greenville R-II Elementary staff members from their school accounts and cannot receive email from any outside email address. Outside individuals and companies will not be able to communicate with children in these grades.

 

Under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), verifiable parental consent is required for students under the age of thirteen (13) if accounts containing this information are created for them on third party websites or online services. Limited information for your child consisting of first name, last name, birth date, username and email address may be provided to the online resource for the purpose of securing confidential credentials and access for the student. This information will remain confidential and will not be shared except for providing online programs solely for the benefit of students and the school system. Under no circumstances will student information be used by third party websites for commercial purposes.
