Aeries Data Confirmation
Back to School Data Confirmation (K-12th Grade)
Data Confirmation for existing WUSD Students
In an effort to streamline the Emergency Card information, the Washington Unified School District is piloting online Data Confirmation for the 2017-2018 school year.
For many of our families, the required “blue card” information does not change from year to year or is much easier and faster to enter this critical information rather than write it out for each child - twice! This year, we are piloting the data confirmation of the blue emergency card information for our existing students only. If you are new to the Washington USD, please contact the Student and Family Support Services by calling (916) 375-7600.
The data confirmation allows parents to log into the Aeries Parent Portal, review the information that is on file, and make any updates to insure all information is current and complete. Simply print out and provide the end product with the other essential information your school provides upon the start of school and you are set - feel free to return the blank blue card back to your site so we can reuse for next year!
By completing the steps below and printing out the information, you will no longer need to provide the “Blue Card” or “Emergency Card”
What is G Suite (formerly Google Apps for Education - GAFE)?
G Suite is a suite of free Google cloud based services that allow teachers and students to collaborate on school projects in a secured environment that is completely separate from public Google offerings and is free from advertising and third party data mining. Examples of Google services that Washington Unified School District has enabled include Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Email, and Google Classroom. Some teachers will be distributing and collecting assignments through G Suite and the Google Classroom service. Students will be learning digital citizenship skills and cyber safety and information security/privacy through use of G Suite and potentially Google Email in certain grades. To enable G Suite, Washington Unified creates district managed G Suite accounts for each student. G Suite and online account management are included in a letter sent home from each school site at the beginning of the school year (English/Spanish/Russian). Parents are able to opt out of having their students enrolled and using G Suite by contacting Kim Harrison, Director of Technology, but this may significantly impact their ability to participate in class learning activities, digital citizenship curriculum, on-line class discussions, and so forth. To help inform parents of the steps that the district and Google has taken to ensure the student's experiences using G Suite remains safe and that their data remains protected and private, we have prepared the following information about Washington Unified's deployment of G Suite and Google's own student data privacy polices.
Data privacy and information security is of great importance to Washington Unified School District and we share your concern that student data is handled appropriately and not shared with outside sources without permission and that all student data remains under our control. We have designed our implementation of cloud based data storage to be as similar as possible to the data access and security we currently have with district hosted files and student files/data on district servers. In addition to G Suite, we make use of services from Backupify (www.backupify.com) and Cloudlock (www.cloudlock.com) to ensure that we have an independent archive of all G Suite data (information stored in Google Drive and Google Email accounts) and the ability to search and monitor the contents of student data stores that is separate from Google. This allows us to have a historical record of any data stored within Google accounts, just as we currently do with district hosted file servers that currently hold student files. We have also employed the services of AmplifiedIT (www.amplifiedit.com), the leading K-12 G Suite consultancy to assist us in configuring our G Suite implementation to ensure that there is no leakage of data or gaps in misconfigurations of the Google Admin console that would lead to a potential security breach or loss of privacy or data.
