At the beginning of the school year various consent forms were sent home with every child, amongst these forms was one for an online account.
A school online account is used for educational purposes, i.e. Mathletics, Soundwaves & Reading Eggs. It does NOT include any social media sites.
All students are carefully monitored and our systems are set up so that only acceptable sites are available.
Our records indicate that you have either ticked no or have not indicated that you allow your child to have access to an online account.
Without this consent your child will not be able to access the various educational sites that we at Boyup Brook District High School deem to be an important part of your child’s education.
While we acknowledge your concern around online accounts, we would really appreciate your consent to use these programs however we do acknowledge that you may not want your child to access these accounts. In this case we will ensure that your child will be provided with an alternative educationally sound learning program.
Please click on the link below and indicate if you do or do not consent to your child accessing an online account for educational purposes.
