KASD COPPA Compliance
 
COPPA 

Dear Parents of students under the age of 13,

Our district utilizes several computer software applications and web-based services operated by third parties. These include Google Education, Study Island, Accelerated Reader, and similar educational sites and programs. A complete list of the programs with the privacy policy for each are listed on our district website, www.kasd.net, under Information for a Parent.  This list of approved sites is updated regularly, so be sure to check back often for new websites and apps.

In order for students to use these programs and services, certain personal identifying information must be provided--generally the student’s name, and sometimes their email address. Under federal law entitled the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (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 https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/privacy-and-security/children%27s-privacy.

The law permits schools to consent to the collection of personal information on behalf of the parents, thereby eliminating the need for individual parental consent given directly to the web site operator. Click the link below to see the list of apps and sites that your consent allows access to.
