Dear Parents/Guardians of Senior Supportive Learning (SSL) Students,

Students registered in the SSL program will be part of the Google Apps for Education program as
outlined in the district form, found in the forms section on Parent Connect. Additionally, those
students registered to do their English course with me, will be offered the opportunity to complete
much of their work online using CANVAS and Moodle, which are two popular Learning Management
Systems used by many colleges and universities in North America and around the world.

These online platforms allow me to post documents, links and a variety of electronic files that I use for
instruction during class time but would also allow students to access the information off site should they
be away, or simply want to review the material on their own. In addition, these platforms allow students
to provide audio and visual responses to selected assignments, thereby providing them alternative
methods to demonstrate learning.

In order to use these tools students will be required to create personal accounts using their Delta School
District email accounts (e.g. Jane Smith will be j.smith@lm.deltasd.bc.ca). As a BC teacher, I am subject
to the BC Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. In accordance with this Act, I must, at all
times, actively work to protect the privacy of students under my care. In order to do so, I will guide
students through the process of setting up online accounts to ensure they avoid posting personal
information that could be used to identify themselves or other persons. I will also teach them how to set
security settings to the highest levels and understand what it means to post responsibly.

Under the Privacy Act, written parental consent is required for student use of online tools.

It is important to be aware that the majority of Internet-based tools are online services hosted outside
of Canada. While stored outside the country, information in your childs accounts may be subject to the
laws of foreign jurisdictions, including, in the United States, the Patriot Act.

This letter of informed consent is to ask permission for your child to use these online tools for my class
for educational purposes. This consent is valid for the duration of the time your child remains in the SSL
English program. You may withdraw your consent in writing at any time. I am aware some parents and
guardians may not be comfortable having their daughter or sons content being published online. If you
choose not to provide your consent for your childs use of Internet-based tools, your child will not be
penalized in any way and alternate activities will be provided, as appropriate.

If you give permission to have your child use these online tools for classroom work, please fill out and
return the permission letter attached.

If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at kgadowsky@deltasd.bc.ca or
call at 604.946.4194 should you wish do discuss this in more depth. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Karen Gadowsky
