Khan Lab School utilizes a variety of software applications and web-based tools operated by third party vendors to support student learning. These instructional supports are evaluated to
ensure compatibility with the educational goals of Khan Lab School. The use of these tools by students is governed by the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA), enacted
in 1998 and amended in 2012 with the amendments effective as of July 2013.
The intent of COPPA is to safeguard students’ personal information when students are accessing online services including apps and websites directed primarily to audiences under age 13. This legislation applies to a general audience site that acknowledges it is collecting personal information from users under 13.
To allow student access to the application, site, or tool certain identifiable information—generally, the student’s name, username, and school-provided email are required by the operator. COPPA grants schools the authority to act as the parent’s agent consenting to the use of student information for educational purposes only. Operators and vendors are required under COPPA to provide schools with appropriate notices and statements.
Khan Lab School supports teaching and learning by accessing applications, websites, and online services operated by third parties.
In addition to G Suite for Education, some of the applications used are Khan Academy, Clever, Canvas, Lexia, BrainPop, Newsela, Zearn, i-Ready, No Red Ink, BrainPop, Kahoot, Quizlet, TinkerCAD, Zoom, Mural, The New York Times, and other similar online tools used for educational purposes. A list of these school-approved learning resources is available from the school. Note that websites and apps may not be used by all students or by all levels.
