Our school uses tools and resources to support student learning, including third party (non-departmental) online services hosted and managed outside of the Department of Education network.
Online services, including websites, web applications, and mobile applications, are delivered over the internet or require internet connectivity. Examples may include interactive learning sites and games, online collaboration and communication tools, web-based publishing and design tools, learning management systems, and file storage and collaboration services.
The new Online Services Consent Form will be available shortly for families to provide consent for the use of the various websites and services.
This form will inform you about the third party online services used in our school and how your child's information, including personal information and works, may be recorded, used, disclosed, and published to the services (if you provide your consent for this to occur).
The consent collected by the form covers both student personal information (e.g. first name and age grouping) and school-based information (e.g., student username, email, year level) as outlined on the form.
Where permitted by the service provider, de-identified information will be used and/or efforts will be made to limit the amount of personal information disclosed and stored within online services (e.g., when registering accounts, only mandatory information will be disclosed).
Works might include materials such as student projects, assignments, portfolios, images, video or audio. Where student works will be created within, stored or published to the online service (in some cases, published information or works will be viewable by the public), this will be indicated in 'additional consent requirements' in Section 5 of the Online Services Consent Form.
