Communication to Parents – re: Parent Connect
Each year, consent is required for use of digital/online tools used in classrooms for data privacy reasons. This year, our school district has created a way to provide consent using an online platform called Parent Connect.
To sign up for Parent Connect, please go to parentconnect.sd61.bc.ca and click, “Create an Account”. The information used to create an account and verify your information comes directly from the contact information we have on file. If the information is outdated, you will need to contact the office to ensure all data is up-to-date.
After signing up, you will see on the homepage that there may be digital/online tools for you to consider granting consent or denying consent after reading the information regarding student data privacy. Anytime a new item is added by your child’s teacher(s) you will be sent a notification to the email with which you signed up. If you deny consent for an item, please speak with your child’s teacher and/or an administrator at the school for accommodations when the digital/online tool is being used.
Thank you for your efforts in helping us launch this platform. If you do not have access to technology at home, please ask the office staff for a paper copy that can be signed and returned.
