Third Party Online Services Consent

Thank you to parents and carers who have completed the Third Party Online Services Consent, we appreciate your time to read and consent to the different categories to ensure students continue to have access to services utilised in our classrooms.

Parents and Carers who have not yet responded, we require the online consent forms to be completed immediately to allow your child to access the range of Third Party Online Services used everyday in their classrooms.

To clarify the need for specific consent, the Department states:

 

ONLINE THIRD PARTY SERVICES:

·       are provided to you by a vendor external to the Department of Education

·       are free or paid services

·       can include versions that may be downloaded onto staff and student devices

 

THESE SERVICES PROVIDE FUNCTION SUCH AS:

·       school or student management

·       teacher administration

·       student learning content or activities

·       communication tools

 

ONLINE THIRD PARTY SERVICES MAY REQUIRE:

·       students or teachers to create separate student accounts

·       students to participate in online activities or upload content

·       students or teachers to provide personal student and/or parent information

 

To confirm, students who do not have parent consent for the different categories – Notification, Bundled or Explicit – will not be able to use the Third Party Online Service, in class, during the lesson and will be restrictive with some assessment tasks.

It is important to note, as outlined in the attached Appendix G, H and I (attached to this notice, on our website and also located in the Connect Library) that each service has undergone a thorough assessment and are deemed safe to use by the Department of Education.

Please contact the school on 9797 4400 or australind.shs@education.wa.edu.au for further clarification.

Completion of the Third Party Online Services Consent form is required immediately to ensure students are able to continue using the services.
