Does anyone have a general online waiver that I can use for students?

I want to have a piece of paper where parents give express written consent to allow students to use a variety of online platforms like Behance, Pinterest, Wordpress and others. I also want to be able to post artwork on our own Wordpress (or other blogging platform if you saw my last discussion question). I want all parents to be comfortable with digital publishing before we dive into the real world with it.

If you don't have a waiver-type thing made already, are there things you can think of that should be on the waiver I make? If I end up making my own, I will post it in the Resource section of EdEx.

The Los Angeles Unified School District has a waiver available for print out. This waiver is usually given to students at the beginning of the school year so that students can use the internet. It explains the acceptable use policy for both students and parents. If students do not have this document signed they are not allowed to use the internet.

I would suggest creating one in Acrobat using an interactive PDF and digital signatures. Easy to post, collect, archive and you don't have a stack of lose paper to lose.

Hey Aaron,

Our Acceptable Use Agreement sounds like something you might be able to use. It, along with our Media Consent form goes home with all of our students at the beginning of the year. Students don't get their device until it is returned. I got 100% back by week 2. I'd be happy to email it to you...

I am very interested in this topic. Did you get any response to this? I wonder if any members of this exchange are teaching law. I wonder if the public school systems must act on the form and approve it as a policy document in order for legally binding.
