The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), federal legislation which aim to protect children under 13 when using the Internet.
“The intent of COPPA is not to limit children’s access to websites or information, rather to limit the Web site operators’ or creators’ ability to get information from children.”
Throughout the school year we may be using different websites for educational purposes. These websites are known as web 2.0 tools and Google Apps for Education (GAFE).
Some of these web 2.0 tools require the teacher provide your child with a username/password to access the site and its content. The information can include a student’s first and last name, his/her ID number, and the school name. This information is kept confidential by the site and not used for any purpose other than account creation.
Because your child is under the age of 13, the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), federal legislation which aim to protect children when using the Internet, requires that Valley Community Schools notify you and/or obtain written permission for your child to use these web sites.The intent of this part of the policy is to serve as both a notice to parent/guardian of the use of these web sites and signed consent from you, the parent, for your child to be able to use these sites.
Below is a list of sites – This List will be updated throughout the year.
