Last update: 10/11/2017

Social Media (for web apps and online services outside of Canada)
Use pages 1-3 in this school district document.
AP334 and AP334-1 is for use by teachers who want students to use specific web apps or online services.

  • This form is needed if the web service or app is outside of Canada and requires the collection of any student personal information (e.g. Seesaw, IXL Math, Edmodo, Scholantis, Weebly)
  • This form is not needed if student data is anonymized, or if the servers are in Canada
  • Usual practice is for teachers to distribute, collect, and keep the consent forms on file in their classroom for the year
  • Each year a new form would be used with the new students

Google (for Learn34 G Suite student accounts)
Use pages 6-10 in this school district document.
Schools distribute AP334-4 and AP334-5 to all students and parents/guardians to provide information and the informed consent signature form

  • A Learn34 District Google account is an option for students and their parents/guardians and requires informed consent to be activated
  • Alternate assignments are to be provided for families who do not opt in
  • The Learn34 District Google consent form (AP334-5) is collected and stays on file at the school
  • This consent form is collected once throughout K-12
  • Grade 4 is the most common grade to begin using the Google platform
  • When a student moves schools their consent form should be forwarded to the new school

Note: GAFE and Google Apps for Education, which is referred to in the document, is now known as G Suite.
