Notice of Activities

(as required by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, Sections 33, 34, 39 and 40)


The purpose of this notice is to inform you about the collection and use of student information by Northern Lights School Division No. 69.

In many cases the information is specifically mandated under the School Act, such as the information provided when a student is registered. For example, the Division must provide Alberta Education with specific information on each student. Certain information may also be required by the Regional Health Authority or other Ministries. In other instances, personal information is collected and used for authorized programs and activities that are a normal part of school life. These uses, which are listed below, are a vital part of a healthy and functioning school and participation of all students is very important. We realize, however, that there may be occasions where you, as parents or guardians, have concerns relating to the safety of your child with any of these uses of information. If this is the case, please contact the school office.

Effective upon signing and continuing for as long as your child is a student in the school that he/she is currently registering in, all parents are requested to review the following information and either provide consent or specify considerations where you are withholding consent. Parents of continuing students in the same school will not be asked to sign this consent form each year. What is marked on this consent form will be used at the school for as long as your child attends this specific school or until you inform the school in writing of a change or if you are revoking your permission.

Types of activities where information may be collected or used include:

  1. The use of student names in lists for planning, for emergency procedures, in managing busing issues, and in coordinating school activities.

The taking of photos and/or videos of classroom activities, and their use by the media or other organizations where students are not interviewed or identified by name or face (Where individual students are identified or interviewed and the material will be used outside the school, a separate and specific consent will be required). Please note that photos and/or videos of school activities that are open to the general public may be taken and used for purposes within and outside of the school. Such photos or videos do not require consent;
  9. The taking of photos/videos of classroom or other school activities by the school board where the material will be used within the school (where individual students are identified or interviewed and the material will be used outside the school, a separate and specific consent will be required and you will be contacted prior to the disclosure taking place);
  10. Mandatory disclosure of both student and parent information to assist the Regional Health Authorities with communicable disease intervention and follow-up (such as vision, speech, hearing, dental, immunization programs).
