Student Use of Third-Party Websites and Web-based Resources
Detroit Public Schools Community District (“DPSCD”) believes that technology is an important resource for enhancing the education of students with the most effective web-based tools and applications for learning.
Under the federal law titled “Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule (COPPA),” these websites must provide parental notification and obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting personal information from children. However, the law permits school districts to obtain this consent, thereby eliminating the need for each website operator to request parental consent.
Parent Internet Permission Consent Form
This form constitutes your consent for DPSCD to provide personal identifying information to the operators of web-based educational programs and services for your child, consisting of some or all of the following on a case-by-case basis:

Please be advised that your student will not be allowed to visit web-based educational programs and services during school hours unless the District receives a signed parental consent form. Please return this form to your school’s office.
