Educational web-based tools and applications provide our teachers with resources to enhance, enrich, and differentiate curriculum delivery and instruction for our students. Our District carefully evaluates online resources for their ability to meet our students’ needs while protecting the confidentiality of personally identifiable information.

Some web-based programs require some student data to create accounts. KCSD neither requires nor encourages students to provide additional personal information beyond what is required to create student accounts. Each provider offers information about their organization's collection, use, protection, and disclosure of data through their unique privacy policies, which can be found on their websites.

Information related to the Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is provided via the link below. This new federal law requires that websites notify parents and obtain parental consent when collecting personal information from children under the age of 13. Under the law, schools are permitted to provide consent to the collection of personal information on behalf of their students, eliminating the need for individual parental consent to be given directly to the website provider. For more information on COPPA, please visit: https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-coppa-frequently-asked-questions.

The District also provides Google's G-Suite for Education to all of our students. Google's G-Suite for Education is fully hosted on the Internet allowing students to access their files and a suite of productivity applications anytime, making it an excellent tool for homework, communication, and collaboration. This service, as well as authorized third-party partner providers, allows the District to monitor and manage use of these services in accordance with our Acceptable Use Policy. For more information specific to Google's G-Suite for Education’s privacy policy, visit: https://www.google.com/edu/trust/.

Las herramientas y aplicaciones educativas establecidas en el sitio web brindan a nuestros maestros recursos para mejorar, enriquecer y diferenciar la presentación del currículo y la instrucción para nuestros estudiantes. Nuestro distrito evalúa cuidadosamente los recursos en línea para determinar su capacidad de satisfacer las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes al mismo tiempo que protege la confidencialidad de la información de identificación personal.

Algunos programas establecidos ​​en el sitio web requieren algunos datos de los estudiantes para crear cuentas. KCSD no requiere ni incita a los estudiantes a proporcionar información personal adicional más allá de lo que se require para crear cuentas de los estudiantes. Cada proveedor ofrece información sobre la recopilación, uso, protección y divulgación de datos de su organización, a través de sus políticas de privacidad únicas que se pueden encontrar en sus sitios web.

La información relacionada con la Ley de protección de la privacidad infantil en línea (COPPA) se proporciona a través de la cadena de internet de abajo. Esta nueva ley federal, requiere que los sitios web, notifiquen a los padres y obtengan el consentimiento de los padres cuando recopilen información personal de niños menores de 13 años. De acuerdo con la ley, las escuelas pueden dar su consentimiento para la recopilación de información personal, en nombre de sus estudiantes eliminando así, la necesidad para que se otorgue el consentimiento parental individual directamente al proveedor del sitio web. Para obtener más información sobre COPPA, visite: https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-coppa-frequency-asked-questions.

El Distrito también proporciona G-Suite for Education de Google a todos nuestros estudiantes. G-Suite for Education de Google está totalmente presentado en Internet, lo que permite a los estudiantes acceder a sus archivos y a un conjunto de aplicaciones de productividad, en cualquier momento requerido. Lo que lo convierte en una herramienta excelente para la tarea, la comunicación y la colaboración. Este servicio al igual que los proveedores asociados externos y autorizados le permite al Distrito monitorear y administrar el uso de estos servicios de acuerdo con nuestras Políticas de uso Aceptable. Para obtener más información específica sobre las políticas de privacidad de Google G-Suite for Education, visite: https://www.google.com/edu/trust/.
