APPLICATIONS/PROGRAMS WITH AGE RESTRICTIONS
In addition to student accounts, the District utilizes various applications and websites for student use. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act requires operators of commercial websites to obtain parent approval before doing business with or collecting personal information from children under the age of 13. However, it is difficult to obtain this consent from every single parent in the school setting, so federal law allows for school districts to provide this consent on behalf of all students when a website is used for educational purposes. LPS will only consent for students to access websites that are educational and will never consent to the collection or use of a student’s personal information for commercial purposes. LPS strictly follows all federal laws protecting the confidentiality of student information.
If you have any questions regarding the websites LPS uses, please feel free to contact your building administrator. For more information on COPPA, go to http://www.business.ftc.gov/documents/0493-Complying-with-COPPA-FrequentlyAsked-Questions#Schools.
