CASL & FOIP Consent in PowerSchool
September 9, 2016 - As you may already know, the laws outlined in the Canada Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP) govern how schools and the school division can use the information we collect from you when you register your child for school.
For more information on what may be considered a Commercial Electronic Message for school jurisdictions, vist the Canada Anti-Spam Legislation page on our website.
Your CASL consent allows schools and the school division to send you electronic communications (e.g. emails or newsletters) containing commercial messages, while your FOIP consent allows us to share information about your child (e.g. name and picture) with the public.
It is now easier than ever for you to indicate your CASL and FOIP consent using your PowerSchool account. Please watch the short video below and follow along with these simple steps so we know how you prefer your information to be handled.
For more information, please contact your school office.
