General Audio/Video Learning Notice

The District is providing this notice regarding the use of audio/video learning that the District is currently offering for learning at home. The District may use live and recorded audio/video conferences with teachers and other educational personnel in order to deliver educational services. Your student will be able to participate in any such conferences offered by the District for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

  • Your student will be receiving instruction or related services through video conferencing provided by Zoom. This service has been designed for educational use and includes security features to prevent unauthorized users from accessing student data and information. Although the instructional content delivered via this platform will be largely consistent with what is provided in the school setting, we understand the context is different given both the method of delivery of and having the service delivered in the home setting. If for any reason you are not comfortable with instruction or related services through video conferencing, please contact the campus principal to discuss alternative means to provide this instruction or related services.
  • Also, as a reminder during our remote learning days, school policy regarding sharing of student information remains in place. When students are present in the school buildings and receiving classroom instruction, audio and video recordings and photography by parents or other visitors to the school are not allowed without the advance permission of the teacher and the written consent of the parents/guardians of the students who will be photographed.  This same standard applies to our remote learning instruction. Students and parents/guardians should refrain from making audio and/or video recordings of remote learning instruction, or taking photographs of students participating in such instruction, without express permission of the teacher delivering the instruction or a school administrator. If you receive such recordings or photographs from a source other than New Trier, delete them and do not post or forward.
