The Children’s Center for Communication/ Beverly School for the Deaf is a program that takes pride in utilizing technological advances for educational purposes.   These endeavors are often used to honor and promote the positive activities that occur on a daily basis. In order to do this, CCCBSD frequently uses the images of enrolled students in a variety of settings for the purpose of: educational instruction (including the use of student communication devices – e.g. Dynavox), creation of portfolios, contribution to CCCBSD’s resource library, and information or promotional materials.

As part of standard practice, CCCBSD will use your child’s image for internal media on a regular basis. CCCBSD defines internal media as photos/videos that can be viewed but are never shared externally as a hard copy or electronically (for example: photos in the classroom, classroom videos for shared experiences, photos/videos shown for events or presentations, etc.).

Photos and videos are also used for purposes that require external media. CCCBSD defines external media as photos/videos that can be viewed and/or shared as a hard copy or electronically (e.g. Newspaper, annual reports, home notes, classroom photos emailed to families, YouTube, Facebook, etc.) CCCBSD will never post names of students to social media and websites. Only first names are given to newspapers. Parents will be notified if their child’s likeness has been photographed for a newspaper article.

If you have objections to your child being photographed or videoed for the purpose of external media, please specify your objections below. (for example: All photos are fine. No video or All forms of media are okay but do not identify my child by name.)

CCCBSD does not take responsibility for images taken of your child by non CCCBSD staff members that may be published as external media (e.g. a photo/video with your child’s image in the background at school wide events.). Further, I release CCCBSD, its Board of Trustees, employees, and other representatives from any known liabilities, known or unknown, arising out of the use of these materials.
