1344 Student Photographs/Digital Images on Web Sites

In recognition of the potential dangers inherent in using student photographs on the District’s web sites, it is the policy of the Board of Education to prohibit the use of student photographs on the District’s web sites and in the District’s e-newsletter unless it is a distant group photograph and no student is identifiable. Notwithstanding the above, a student’s photograph/digital image may be used on the District’s web site and in the District’s e-newsletter with the parent’s/ guardian’s written permission.

It is the further policy of the Board of Education that only students’ first names will be used on the web site and that no student names will be used in conjunction with photographs, artwork and written work, unless specific written permission is received from the student’s parent/guardian to do so.
