red box with the words "Important Information"
UPDATED Privacy and Copyright Information for [email protected] Remote Learning
As always, the protection of student privacy and confidentiality is a paramount concern so, the following updated information and expectations have been established for [email protected] remote learning:
  • While parents and guardians are always permitted to observe live online instruction in a non-disruptive manner, [email protected] remote lessons and classes are the copyrighted property of the Cumberland County Schools (“CCS”), and may not be recorded, screenshot, photographed, or distributed by either parents/guardians or students, without the prior written consent of CCS.
  • In addition to potential copyright violations, reproduction or distribution of CCS remote lessons and classes may result in violations of other state or federal laws, such as prohibitions against cyberbullying.
  • Parents/guardians and other household members who do not normally observe day-to-day classroom activity and interaction in the traditional, school building setting are expected to maintain the confidentiality of personal or private information, such as a student’s disability status, which may be inadvertently disclosed or discovered in the course of permitted observation of remote lessons and classes.
CCS appreciates the understanding and cooperation of its families during this unprecedented time.
