It is a best-practice for schools to provide parents and students with the option to opt-out of online photo and student work publication at the start of the academic year. By having a default opt-in policy, where parents and students must specifically opt-out to NOT have photos and student work published online, schools can encourage more online sharing to amplify positive stories of learning in our communities.
