NLESD Guidelines For Families Concerning Google Meet

Guidelines for Families to Help Protect Student and Family Privacy:

Video meetings between teachers and students are extensions of the classroom and regular classroom rules apply. While we are connecting with students in a virtual environment, everyone has a responsibility to ensure the protection of privacy. Please strictly adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Teachers will invite students to participate in virtual meetings by sharing a meeting URL or unique nickname through Gmail or Google Classroom. To ensure that only invited guests have access to the session, please do not share this meeting information publicly.
  • The meeting will show the names and faces of student participants. To ensure that identities are kept private, please do not post any photos or videos of your child’s virtual meetings to social media if other student faces or names are shown.
  • Discuss ways you can protect the privacy of members of your household, such as physically locating in one spot without background activity.
