Education Law 2d

The Palmyra-Macedon Central School District is committed to providing your student with the most effective web-based tools and applications for learning. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requires parental notification and consent for student use of district approved online resources for instructional purposes. The law permits schools to act as the parent’s agent and can consent to the collection of student information on the parent’s behalf with parent permission.

A complete list of the programs with the privacy policy and terms of service for each can be found below. The Palmyra-Macedon Central School District creates student accounts for several contracted computer software applications and web-based services such as Google Apps for Education, Fastbridge, and Discovery Streaming. By contract, these vendors have agreed to protect student privacy and adhere to COPPA regulations.

Any additional web-based educational programs and services which our schools may add during the upcoming academic year will be posted here shortly after purchase.

A copy of the letter we send to vendors can be found here, along with the questions they are asked to complete, as well as information pertaining to section 2-d of the NYS Educational Law and our Parents Bill of Rights for Data Privacy and Security.
