Instructional Technology Resource Consent

At Far Hills, we are committed to using technology in responsible and innovative ways to increase student learning. We carefully assess the resources we use to ensure that they are developmentally appropriate, follow best practices in safeguarding student privacy, and are a good match for our curriculum. 

We will be using resources that may require your child to have an account on an app, website, or service throughout the year. Many of these applications require parental permission before a student under the age of 13 may register. To simplify the process, we maintain this page on our website that lists all the resources for which parental permission is required. When you sign the Parent Handbook, AUA, and Resource Consent Form, you give consent for your child to access these resources. 

If you have any questions about the resources or the process, please contact oforsythe@fhcds.org or your Lower or Upper School Division Director for clarification.

Should students need to engage in one-on-one virtual meetings with staff members. Parents, guardians, and students understand that the School is unable to guarantee complete security, confidentiality, and privacy through the use of electronic software provided by Zoom, Google, and other third parties. As the situation evolves, the School is using alternative sources to educate the community, which is unprecedented but necessary. 

Below is the current list of Instructional Technology Resources that your student may be asked to interact with and sign in to during the school year. It will be updated as new resources are added.
