A school district in Tennessee is now requiring parents to sign an agreement to not monitor their children’s virtual classes.
The school district is concerned over the parents potentially overhearing confidential information.
The Daily Wire reported that a copy of this agreement was sent to the Tennessee Star. The agreement read: “RCS strives to present these opportunities in a secure format that protects student privacy to the greatest extent possible, however, because these meetings will occur virtually RCS is limited in its ability to fully control certain factors such as non-student observers that may be present in the home of a student participating in the virtual meeting.”
The agreement outlines the need to avoid the “non-student observation of online meetings due to the potential of confidential information about a student being revealed,” and although it does not explicitly say that parents may not look over their child’s shoulder while virtual instruction is taking place, it does say that a “violation of this agreement may result in RCS removing my child from the virtual meeting.”
