Many school districts obtain parental consent for student access to a range of programs, technologies, and applications at the onset of the school year. If your school district has already obtained parental consent to access Curriculum Pathways resources, tools, and apps, then we can help you streamline the account registration process. Here’s how!
Who can take advantage of district-level consent?
- Districts that have secured valid parental consent to create student accounts.
- Districts that have accepted the District Administrator Agreement.
Why pursue district-level consent?
- Curriculum Pathways is a free product that requires users to agree to a license agreement.
- The standard registration process prompts each individual to review and agree to our license agreement.
- Students under 18 are prompted to provide parent email addresses and await parental authorization to activate accounts. Verifiable parental consent is required for the collection, use, or disclosure of a child's personal identifying information. SAS will not collect, use, or disclose personal information from a student under the age of eighteen (18) without such consent.
- More information about our standard practices for account creation can be found in this FAQ.
- Eligible school districts may satisfy these steps on behalf of educators and students in their districts for educational purposes.
- Activating district-level consent allows district educators and students to create logins with a code obtained by the district.
How does it work?
- A district representative contacts Curriculum Pathways via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, expressing interest in obtaining district-level consent.
- In reply, Curriculum Pathways will send a district-specific code and custom URL to the district representative. This email should be received by, or forwarded to, an authorized signatory for the district.
- When the district signatory clicks on the code or custom URL, a District Administrator Agreement is presented that includes:
- The district signatory completes the District Administrator Agreement, including acceptance of the license agreement on behalf of district users and confirming parental consent on behalf of minors (as applicable), provides required contact information, then submits the form electronically to Curriculum Pathways.
- Once the completed District Administrator Agreement is received by Curriculum Pathways the district signatory receives an automated email from email@example.com confirming the process is complete and providing a unique district-level URL for distribution to only educators and students in the district. Using this unique URL, educators and students can then create individual accounts.
- Educators and students who access the public Sign Up page will continue to be presented with the Curriculum Pathways License Agreement and, if under 18, a prompt for parental consent authorization.
What happens when educators sign up using district-level consent?
- They are prompted for their name, email address, user name, and password.
- As their login is created, it is automatically associated with the district.
- District or school info can be updated after logging in. More details here.
I’m a district coordinator. Can I see the list of educators that used the link?
- Educators’ logins are automatically associated with the district when signing up using district-level consent.
- As new educators’ logins are associated with the district, you will receive email notifications.
- A full list of educators associated with the district is also visible within your profile. More details here.
- Educators can update their district or school info after logging in. If their school or district information changes, they will no longer be in your list. More details here.
This sounds great. How do I get started?
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your interest in entering into a District Administrator Agreement on behalf of your district’s educators and students.
- We’ll begin discussions and get you on your way!
A note to our international users - at this time district consent is only available in the United States.
