Privacy Matters

Privacy Matters

Privacy and information security is very important at Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools.  All students have a G suite for Education account which gives them access to Google core services, primarily Gmail, Calendar, Drive, and Classroom and Google additional services, primarily YouTube, Blogger and Maps.

"G Suite for Education administrators determine which Google services their users can access, and are required to provide or obtain consent for the use of the services by their minor users.

When a school obtains appropriate consent, Additional Services that allow it, such as YouTube, Maps, and Blogger, can be used without age restrictions by G Suite for Education users.

The G Suite for Education Privacy Notice is meant to help G Suite for Education users and parents understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it." (https://gsuite.google.com/terms/education_privacy.html)

WRPS Technology Responsible Use Agreement 140-1 and 140-2 are signed by parents and students at the start of every school year to ensure awareness of safety rules and guidelines when using technology for learning.
