HCPS Compliant Online Resource Endorsement (CORE) 


HCPS follows best practices as determined by the Federal Trade Commission’s guidance pertaining to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. The practices include providing parents information about the websites and online services that have been approved for use district-wide. Each of these resources have been examined and endorsed by our instructional team. To find out more about the resources that your student(s) may use visit the HCPS Digital Resource page.

If you would like to submit a resource for consideration please review the resource’s Terms of Service, check the “Not approved list” (link below), and finally submit it for review (link below).

COPPA: Pertains to websites and online services that seek to collect information about or from students under 13 years of age. COPPA specifies the language that should be in the privacy policy of the service, as well as when the service must have parental consent to collect the information.Resources on the CORE list were reviewed by an Instructional Team and then vetted by the HCPS attorney through the lens of COPPA compliance.
