Zoom Application and Parent/Guardian Consent Request

As you are aware there are some security concerns regarding the use of Zoom with our students.  The current Zoom application and platform available for use is only a version that is not a made for British Columbia version.  As a result we are asking parents/guardians to read the message below and complete a short Parent consent form.

School District 57 is governed by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act which states that we must ask for informed consent before using tools and software that may store a student’s or parent’s personal information outside of Canada.

The below link will open an online consent form describing a tool we wish to use for continued educational support during the suspension of in-class instruction. Please read the information carefully and fill out the fields that follow, indicating if you give consent or not. This information will be kept on file for reference at your school.
