WASD Technology Vision
Provide students and staff tools and opportunities to incorporate technology as an integral part of education. Creating Digital Technology Learning with higher level Application Opportunities for the Success of Our Students at the Career and College Level.
In 21st Century schools, teachers are increasingly using external websites as instructional tools in the classroom. While this practice is appropriate, any website that requires students to create an account or provide personal information is subject to a Federal law known as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
COPPA applies any time personal information of children under the age of 13, such as a student’s name and email address, is collected by a website operator. Under COPPA, these websites must provide parental notification and obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13. The law permits schools to consent to the collection of personal information on behalf of parents of students, thereby eliminating the need for individual parental consent given directly to the website operator.
Wautoma Area School District has created a living document that parents can view for updated sites teachers might use in their classrooms. Please visit the list HERE.
For more information on COPPA, please visit the Federal Trade Commission FAQ site.
