The Wenatchee School District utilizes a number of computer software applications and web-based services to supplement educational services provided by school-based staff. While these tools are reviewed to ensure that they provide students with effective tools for learning, the applications and services are not operated by the district but by 3rd parties. In order for students to use these programs and services, certain personally identifying information – typically the student’s name and e-mail address – must be provided to the web site/application operator.

Under the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the websites/application operators must provide parent/guardian notification and obtain consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13. The law permits school districts to consent to the collection of personal information on behalf of its students thus eliminating the need for individual parent/guardian to consent directly to individual website/application providers.  For more information on COPPA, please visit https://goo.gl/JTs4uR

If you wish to learn more about how the application or web-based service is used with your child, you should contact your child’s teacher or principal. If you wish to learn more about the kinds of information gathered by 3rd party operators, the terms of service and privacy policies are provided below.  A list of some of the programs with the privacy policy for each can be found below.

The Opt-Out form when completed and on file allows you to opt-out of any site that you would like, with the understanding that your student will have to be provided and do different work within the classroom that does not align with their peers or achieve the same outcomes.

Parent Opt-Out Form* - Please download, fill out and return to your students school office. *Students participanting in our 1:1 device initiative have already had parent permission for sites that we use in that program at the start of the year:
