Shutesbury Elementary School is committed to

providing our students with the most effective,

educational web-­based tools and applications.These tools and applications may

include, but are not limited to, Dreambox, Khan Academy, Spelling City,, and others. In order to create accounts for our students, we must comply with federal regulations requiring parental consent as outlined below.

Our school utilizes several web-­based sites and apps that are operated by third party services. In order for our students to utilize these programs and services, basic student information must be provided to the third parties. Under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), these web-­based tools and applications must notify parents and obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting this information from children under 13 years of age. In addition, under this law, schools are permitted to consent to the collection of this information on behalf of its students. This eliminates the need for individual parental consent given directly to each website or app provider. For additional information regarding COPPA, please visit:

This form will constitute for verifiable parental consent for our school to provide personal identifying information for your child that may consist of first name, last name, username, birth date, and, if applicable, email address in order to create accounts on third party websites and apps. A complete list of the websites and apps and links to their privacy policies can be found on our website, under Service - Technology - COPPA Compliance Consent - Websites and Apps (click here).

Once agreed to, access to websites and apps will remain in effect for the duration of the student's enrollment unless parental permission is withdrawn in writing. If you have questions regarding which third-­party apps or websites will be utilized during the current school year, please contact your student’s teacher. coppa signature
