    Expectations When Video Conferencing

    • Students should only join meetings created by their teachers. Students should only display their real name during class meetings. Students should not use Zoom or any other district platform to meet with other students in an unsupervised environment.

    • If you need to help your child access Zoom, please remember to keep all information about other children that you may see or hear during remote learning strictly confidential. This includes anything discussed or displayed as a part of Zoom class meetings. As we continue to provide education and services for all students, we are appreciative of our parents’ and guardians’ willingness to maintain confidentiality.

    • Please refrain from commenting or participating in a Zoom meeting as all meetings are intended for children only, even when parent support is needed for students to access Zoom.
      Students’ device cameras should generally remain on during instruction, unless the teacher directs the child to turn it off or if the child has permission. This allows the teacher to monitor student engagement.

    • Students should use proper online etiquette, including muting themselves when they are not talking and taking turns so that everyone can participate in the discussion. When the session is over, students must close out the app once the teacher has ended the session.

    • During Zoom instruction, we expect students, parents, and other household members to respect the privacy of others by not taking pictures or recording the session; this includes not taking screenshots. Just as recording would not be allowed in a physical classroom, it is not allowed in a virtual classroom. Additionally, audio/video recordings of any session is strictly prohibited and is in violation of the law, as well as district policy.

    • Most importantly, students need to be kind and respectful during the live video conferencing sessions.
