Online Tools Used in the Weston Schools

 

Educators in our schools use a variety of resources for instruction.  Some of these include online web tools used on computers. We are cognizant that use of these online tools may require accounts to be created, or even if no account is required, that data is being generated about the interaction by those online tools.  To help us protect the online privacy of students, we joined the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC), a national resource that has set up standards and guidelines for educational software products that align with federal laws. With the help and resources of this consortium, we are vetting all of the educational online resources, both paid resources, and free online tools, to ensure they comply with SDPC standards.

Weston is using the tools posted to this Weston Online Resources site.  The specific online agreements are list on this SDPC Weston Resources Page page within the national SDPC website.

The use of technology in Weston Public Schools is governed by federal laws including COPPA, FERPA, and CIPA.  More information about these Protection Acts are linked here.
