Photo Opt Out Form

Lincolnshire–Prairie View School District 103 and all of its schools have many opportunities to recognize and showcase students’ work, accomplishments, and activities throughout the year using photos of students, providing name recognition on the website, media, or newsletters, and/or publishing copies of their work. This may take the form of print newsletters, video, social media (names are withheld), websites, newspaper articles, etc.

If you’re OK with having your student’s photo, name, and/or student work published, please DO NOT fill this form out. Parents who DO NOT want their child’s photograph, name used, and/or student work published need to complete this Photo Opt Out Form each school year and return it to your child's school or mail it to Margaret Van Duch, 111 Barclay Boulevard, Lincolnshire, IL 60069.

Student Online Personal Protection Act

A consistent goal within District 103 is to provide a safe environment for all stakeholders. On July 1, 2021, the Student Online Personal Protection Act, or SOPPA, went into effect in the State of Illinois. The main purpose of the SOPPA law is to make sure that student data is not misused. This law requires that education institutions, such as District 103, have student data privacy agreements signed and in place with every company we contract with that has access to student data. To read more about how D103 and the State of Illinois is protecting students and staff, please visit the district instructional technology website pages.

School districts throughout the State of Illinois contract with different educational technology vendors for beneficial K-12 purposes such as providing personalized learning and innovative educational technologies, and increasing efficiency in school operations.

Under Illinois’ Student Online Personal Protection Act, or SOPPA (105 ILCS 85/), educational technology vendors and other entities that operate Internet websites, online services, online applications, or mobile applications that are designed, marketed, and primarily used for K-12 school purposes are referred to in SOPPA as operators. SOPPA is intended to ensure that student data collected by operators is protected, and it requires those vendors, as well as school districts and the Ill. State Board of Education, to take a number of actions to protect online student data.

Depending upon the particular educational technology being used, our District may need to collect different types of student data, which is then shared with educational technology vendors through their online sites, services, and/or applications. Under SOPPA, educational technology vendors are prohibited from selling or renting a student’s information or from engaging in targeted advertising using a student’s information. Such vendors may only disclose student data for K-12 school purposes and other limited purposes permitted under the law.

In general terms, the types of student data that may be collected and shared include personally identifiable information (PII) about students or information that can be linked to PII about students, such as:

  • Basic identifying information, including student or parent/guardian name and student or parent/guardian contact information, username/password, student ID number

  • Demographic information

  • Enrollment information

  • Assessment data, grades, and transcripts

  • Attendance and class schedule

  • Academic/extracurricular activities

  • Special indicators (e.g., disability information, English language learner, free/reduced meals or homeless/foster care status)

  • Conduct/behavioral data

  • Health information

  • Food purchases

  • Transportation information

  • In-application performance data

  • Student-generated work
