Student Confidentiality Notice (Online Instruction)
Confidentiality Notice for Google Classroom, Google Meet, and Other Online Platforms used by Concordia Parish Schools for Remote Learning
Dear Parent or Guardian,
To best meet the needs of our students during this school year, our teachers are using various resources and platforms to offer instruction and support.
Please note that through google classroom, all students participating will be able to see each other’s names and student email addresses.
Some of our teachers and therapists may also be using a live video feed such as Google Meet to interact with our students. This could occur with individual students, in small groups, or with whole classrooms. By joining a virtual group, you agree to participate and acknowledge that your child’s name (first and last) will be accessible to other student participants. With live video feeds, we are also unable to control who else may be in the room when a student is receiving these services remotely. If at any time, you are not comfortable with having your child participate in a Google Meet, please reach out to your child’s teacher to discuss your concerns.
The Concordia Parish School system expects that all families review and implement the following guidelines and expectations to ensure that the confidentiality rights of all students are protected when live videos are used.
- The Parent or Guardian shall make every effort to ensure that no one other than the student scheduled to participate can see or hear the live virtual session.
- No recordings will be made by the parent, guardian, or student of virtual live sessions.
- If parental or other third-party involvement in a virtual live session is necessary to enable a student to participate, the individual assisting the student shall not re-disclose any personally identifiable information about any student participating.
- When participating in a group intervention, please be mindful of the educational environment and eliminate distractions that may divert the students’ attention away from learning.
Thank you for your support. Please contact your child’s teacher-specific questions.
