In order to provide continuity of instruction while schools remain closed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Greensburg will use a variety of teaching methods, including virtual classroom activities. Participation in virtual classroom activities should be under the supervision of the parent/guardian, and is subject to school policies and regulations as stated in the Acceptable Use Policy of the Diocese of Greensburg (please see your school's website for a link to the Acceptable Use Policy).
I understand that my child’s classroom teacher may conduct virtual classroom activities. Be aware that video, including audio, will be used for teaching purposes, and at times, teachers may record classroom activities for educational use/purposes. The recordings will only be shared within the school setting for students unable to attend the virtual classroom activity in real-time. The recordings will be stored, accessed, and disposed of in accordance with the guidelines established in the Acceptable Use Policy of the Diocese of Greensburg.
Before a classroom teacher begins recording a classroom activity, the teacher will let the students know that the class is going to be recorded either from an audio and/or video perspective. If a student does not want to be identified in the recording, the student can turn off their webcam and microphone.
Students are not allowed to record class lectures or take any images to aid in their learning, such as screen shots, and share them publicly. All video and audio from classroom lessons, either virtual or onsite, will be done only by the teacher and shared in our secure learning management system. The Diocese is not liable for any student’s collection, use, storage, or other action(s) with respect to the information or data they may collect. Any student who is caught doing this will be disciplined, suspended or dismissed.
If you have questions or need assistance with virtual classroom activities, please contact your child’s classroom teacher or the school principal.
