Your child has the opportunity to receive an electronic network account or access, and needs your permission to do so. Among other advantages, your child will be able to communicate with other schools,colleges, organizations and individuals around the world through Internet and other electronic information systems and networks. Internet is a system which links smaller computer networks, creating a large and diverse network. Internet allows your child, through electronic mail (e-mail) and other means to reach out to many other people to share information, learn concepts and research subjects. These are significant learning opportunities to prepare your child for the future.
Nespelem School utilizes several web-based software applications and services( SaaS), operated not by NSD, but by third parties. These may include Evernote, Edmodo and similar educational programs.
In order for our students to use these programs and services, certain personal identifying information, generally the student's name and email address, must be provided to the web site operator. Under federal law, these websites must provide parental notification and obtain parental consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13.
For most sites, code names are used for students. Sites such as grading or teacher sites may use student names. We refer to these as "online social sites" and "Acceptable network use by district students and staff" in our Acceptable Use Policy which parents sign each year. In addition our Technology Coordinator and classroom teachers emphasize ongoing training in internet safety. See our Digital Eagle site. As a Google Apps for Education school, here is more information.
