COPPA applies to commercial companies and limits their ability to collect personal information from children under 13. By default, advertising is turned off for Los Gatos Union School District’s presence in Google Apps for Education. No personal student information is collected for commercial purposes. This permission form allows the school to act as an agent for parents in the collection of information within the school context. The school's use of student information is solely for education purposes. COPPA – http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/coppafaqs.shtm
FERPA protects the privacy of student education records and gives parents the rights to review student records. Under FERPA, schools may disclose directory information but parents may request the school not disclose this information. Parents are provided the opportunity annually to opt out of disclosing their student's directory information on the District's Online InfoSnap Registration Form.
