Just like other cloud-based educational tools, ClassDojo requires that schools obtain parental consent if they allow students under the age of 13 to use ClassDojo. In our case, we only rely on schools to obtain consent if the student is using features that do not require the student to create a student account (such as the Student Stories feature). If a student is creating an account on ClassDojo, ClassDojo will seek to obtain parental consent.
For school administrators:
- Share the resources below, which explain ClassDojo’s services and our commitments to privacy and security, with parents. This information will help parents and schools to make informed choices about the technology their students use in the classroom.
- ClassDojo must ensure that services made available to students when school's are getting parental consent, are used for educational purposes, and are used in compliance with applicable laws and regulations (including the U.S. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, the Children’s Internet Protection Act, and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998).
