COPPA Notice

Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA) Notice

Sultan School District seeks to extend and enhance the educational opportunities for students through the use of varying web-based tools and applications. The use of many of these resources by children under the age of 13 is governed by a federal law known as the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA).

COPPA “was put in place to protect kids’ personal information on websites and online services — including apps — that are directed to children under 13. The Rule also applies to a general audience site that knows it’s collecting personal information from kids that age.” (www.ftc.gov) Under COPPA, these websites must provide parental notification and obtain parental consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13. For more information on COPPA, please visit the FTC website.

Our district utilizes several computer software applications and web-based services, operated not by this school, but by third parties. These include Microsoft for Education, Canvas, i-Ready, and similar educational or education-related programs.

In order for our students to use these programs and services, certain personal identifying information - generally the student’s name and school-provided email address - must be provided to the website operator.

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

The district's COPPA form, when completed below and on file with the district, will constitute consent for the district to provide personal identifying information for your child consisting of first name, last name, an email address and username to our associated web-operators as appropriate for school-related purposes.
