Online Safety

We know that you, as a parent, may be concerned with your child’s use of online tools and other technologies that help aid in their learning at school. We share your concern and continuously look for ways to benefit from the vast amount of helpful online tools but your child’s online safety is our top priority. When considering a new online tool, we read the fine print to ensure they are not using your child’s information for commercial use and we only provide necessary directory information for that child to use the program. We believe that our strong practices meet or exceed the requirements with respect to all federal laws regarding COPPA, CIPA, and FERPA.
