75 Policy on Publishing Student Work and Information on the Internet (and forms)

Maine law requires public schools to obtain written approval from parents/guardians prior to publishing personal information about students on the Internet. Mt. Ararat uses two methods for obtaining such permission: 1) a standalone form, and 2) an attachment to be used along with other permission forms used in courses, activities, and programs.

  1. Standalone form
  2. Attachment form

When using the attachment version of the form, staff should preface the signature line with the following text:

I have read the attached description of the MSAD 75 web publication policy, and agree to its terms. Note: Absence of a signature below will in no way affect a student's participation in school courses, activities, or programs.

Parents and guardians of students who are active in curricular and extra-curricular activities will find they are signing this line frequently, as it will come home often on permission forms from activities in which the coach, teacher, or advisor anticipates a possible presence on the Web.

Staff who use the attachment version for obtaining publication permission will keep the forms on file as they have always done, in case a question arises regarding publication permission.

Note: The form refers to the Student Publication Guidelines.
