Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act

Owasso Public Schools utilizes several computer software applications and web-based services, operated not by this district, but by third parties. In order for our students to use these programs and services, certain personally identifiable information, typically consisting of the student’s name and e-mail address, must be provided to the website operator. Under a federal law entitled Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA), these websites must provide parental notification and obtain parental consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13.

COPPA permits a school district to consent to the collection of this information on behalf of all of its students, thereby eliminating the need for individual parental consent given directly to each individual website operator. For more information on COPPA

Each website operator is bound by COPPA to maintain the confidentiality of the information collected. They are also required to post a privacy policy describing their practices.

The COPPA Compliance Form is included in the forms filled out online during pre-registration. This form will constitute consent for your child to make use of the services listed. It will also constitute consent for our district to provide personally identifying information for your child consisting of first name, last name, Student ID #, an email address, and a username to the operators listed.
