Online Services Consent Form (COPPA)

Federal law, specifically the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), requires that children under 13 years of age must have verifiable parental consent to use online services that collect personal information. COPPA also permits a school to gather consent from parents on behalf of its students, thus eliminating the need for parents to provide consent and establish accounts individually with each of the service providers.

Please print and sign a copy of the Online Servicess Consent Form and return to the main office of your school. To simplify our record keeping, we ask that you renew this document each year until your student reaches the 9th grade.

Summer School Information

If your child has failed Math and/or Reading for the 1st trimester of the school year: Per UChicago Charter policy, any student 2nd through 7th grade who fails Reading or Math two out of three trimesters will be required to attend summer school. If the student fails to pass summer school they will be required to have a retention hearing before the beginning of the next school year. Any student who fails Reading or Math all three trimesters during the school year, will be required to have a retention hearing before summer school begins. If students fail two or more trimesters in other courses, they may also be required to attend summer school. The outcome of this hearing may result in the student being retained, or that they are eligible for promotion if they successfully pass the summer term.
