In order for schools within Union County Public Schools (UCPS) to continue to be able to provide your student with the most effective web-based tools and applications for learning, they need to abide by federal regulations that require a parental signature as outlined below.

Our district utilizes several computer software applications and web-based resources, operated not by this school, but by third parties. These include Google Apps for Education (GAFE), Microsoft, Discovery Education, video conferencing, myON and similar educational programs.

In order for our students to use some of these programs and services, certain personal identifying information – generally the student’s name and email address – must be provided to the website operator. Students in grades 3-12 will receive a Google email account to participate in the Google Apps for Education program used by UCPS. Students cannot receive emails from everyone. Student emails are filtered in order to only allow approved senders correspondence to get to students.

Under federal law entitled the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), some websites must provide parental notification and/or obtain parental consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13. For more information on COPPA, please visit - https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-coppa-frequently-asked-questions

The law permits schools such as ours to consent to the collection of personal information on behalf of all of its students, thereby eliminating the need for individual parental consent given directly to the website operator.
