Important information regarding student privacy and use of third party apps and web services
At the Peel District School Board, we are committed to helping each child achieve to the best of his or her ability. Using Modern Learning tools is an essential component of teaching and learning in today's world. Modern Learning tools can include Internet sites where users interact and collaborate in online environments, websites where users log in, and/or applications for tablets. The Peel board believes that these online services are key tools in aiding students and teachers in the development of 21st Century skills.
Please note: In order to support student privacy, Peel board students are requested not to use their school email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to create accounts on any third party, non-protected domain, apps/web services.
The terms and conditions of these app/web-services do not align with the Peel board's Registering and Use of Software, Web-Based Services and Apps guidelines as their services may collect and display the student's private information, including the full name, publicly.
If your child uses their own personal accounts to access these apps/web services, please encourage them to use privacy settings to ensure that their account information, including full name, is not shared publicly.
