Online Resources

These are free online resources and applications that have been vetted by Scarborough Public Schools for student data privacy:

All staff must consider the appropriateness of free applications before using them with students. Check with your Tech Instructional Coach if you are unsure.

All staff must utilize Online Subscription Guidelines (3-3-3 protocol) unless rostered by SPS. This is particularly important for students under the age of 13 as when a teacher or the district rosters a student (creates student accounts), they/we are acting as the agent for parental consent.

If you have questions about any of these resources, or are interested in exploring a new resource, please reach out to your tech coach or librarian.
