Information Privacy and Account Creation Consent

For compliance with BC's Personal Information and Protection Act we require parental consent when using services which host personal information outside of Canada or when creating accounts for children. Below you will find a detailed list of the services we use and their corresponding forms. Families must fill in a separate form for each of their children.


Google Apps for Education

All Campuses - All Students

Google Apps is a hosted solution for E-Mail, Calendar and File Storage and a Google Apps for Education account unlocks access to many tools supported by Google.

Our students (Grade 3 and above) will need a school provided Google Apps account to log in to Chromebooks, use Google Classroom with their teachers and store their files. Grade 3 - 5 students will only have access to Google Classroom and Google Drive. Grade 6 students will have access to Classroom, Drive and GMail.

We require this form to be signed for all students as our staff use Google Apps and may be storing your students' work in their Google Drive.
