Teachers can create accounts for students with any of the following websites or mobile apps unless the student’s parent/guardian has indicated in writing, by submitting a formal letter to the Head of School, that they prefer their child not have this access to these digital learning resources.

Each of the listed on-demand school service provider’s (websites and mobile apps) has been thoroughly reviewed to ensure their privacy policy is in compliance with the Colorado Student Data Transparency and Security Act (HB 16-1423) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Each of the following company’s privacy policy explicitly describes:
