Access Restrictions

Edmonton Public Schools may terminate or restrict access to SchoolZone, at any time, if

• A student's registration at a district school lapses, or

• A change in legal guardianship alters a student's registration at a participating school.

It is the district's intention to make SchoolZone available to users at any time but there may be interruptions to service for such matters as upgrades and routine maintenance.

Appropriate Use of SchoolZone

A user's login ID and password are private. As such, users should not let others use their ID and password. If a user suspects that someone knows their password, they should contact the Webmaster immediately.   School administration and an individual student's teacher(s) have access to the ID, Password and contents of SchoolZone. 

Accuracy of Information

Information relating to student achievement, report cards, project grades etc. is provided within SchoolZone for convenience only. It does not serve to replace the student's in school record.

In the unlikely event that there is a discrepancy between SchoolZone and the student's in school record, information contained in the student's in school record is considered correct.

Privacy and Security

Secure access to SchoolZone is provided through a personalized user ID and password.

Information is transmitted through SSL (Secure Socket Layers) with 128 bit encryption. Sensitive information is kept behind a secure firewall.

Edmonton Public Schools takes reasonable precautions to ensure a student's privacy through observance of Alberta's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the district-wide privacy statement.

Using SchoolZone to access Google Apps for Education

Edmonton Public Schools provides access to and manages Google Apps for Education accounts for staff and students in the division. These secure, online applications allow staff and students to communicate and collaborate using Google powered email, calendars, document sharing, and websites. These applications are different from public Google applications (such as Gmail) in that they are managed by the Division, do not include any advertising, and have more strict filtering and content controls. 

Where is the data stored?

Student data (student attendance, schedule, grades, etc.) are stored on SchoolZone file servers inside the EPSB network. Student files (e.g. essays, presentations, email, etc.) are stored on Google’s servers outside of the district.
