COPPA - Student Privacy

The Harker School makes extensive use of online resources as part of its teaching and learning. This is done in a phased, developmentally appropriate way. Students receive individualized usernames, passwords and restricted email accounts beginning in grade 3.

The following listing shows those internet based software vendors with whom your student may have an account registered with their students.harker.org email. The guidelines and regulations specified in the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA), only applies to personal information collected online from children, including personal information about themselves, their parents, friends, or other persons.

In the interests of keeping parents informed, we have included on this list several resources that have student identifiable information that has been provided by The Harker School in order to permit their unique access. Those sites that do not collect personally identifiable information from the student are not covered by COPPA, but may be included for information purposes. This is a dynamic list as we are continually reviewing student teaching and learning resources. We are always seeking the best possible online resources to support your student's learning.
