Children's Online Privacy Protection Act Information

COPPA (Child Online Privacy Protection Act) requires developers of web-based tools and applications to obtain verifiable parental consent so that children under the age of 13 can use those products. You must provide consent so that your child can access these online educational services.

This year, Lower Merion School District will be using DocuSign to obtain the needed consent. Using DocuSign instead of paper consent forms will speed up the process and allow students access to resources like Dreambox, Seesaw and Newsela earlier in the school year.

On September 3, 2019, (the first day of school), you will receive an email from DocuSign on behalf of Lower Merion School District. This email will contain the COPPA consent form that has been sent home in paper form in years past. Please follow the instructions in the email to provide consent for your child to use the online resources.

More information about COPPA can be found at https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0031-protecting-your-childs-privacy-online.

If you have any questions about the District’s efforts to ensure the privacy of student data or the use of DocuSign to obtain parental consent, please contact George Frazier at isdept@lmsd.org or 610-645-1925.

Below, please find a list of online educational service providers.
