At The Sycamore School (TSS), we are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of information about our students, as well as the data of our students and their families. We take the following steps to safeguard the privacy of information, both online and offline:

  • Notifying families when we are requesting information from them, including the type of information we are requesting and the purpose for which that information will be used.
  • Maintaining accurate records and providing access to personal, identifiable, and retainable information online.
  • Using secure system technology, physical and electronic, to safeguard the information regarding our students.

Our Privacy Policy applies to all information we receive from our students and parents online and in document form. We collect information from students or about our students in instances when a student or parent initiates an online request for information or creates an account on our website. In these situations we collect certain information to verify parental/custodial identities and to verify the intent for use of our services. The specific information we may collect from parents/custodians includes: name, address, and email.

TSS may also use information about our students for internal purposes, such as billing, statistics, student services, fraud monitoring, and expanding and improving the curriculum offered by TSS. Additionally, we may use the information, including postal address and/or email address, to send you school information. (You may opt out of receiving such information by contacting The Sycamore School and completing a written request to be removed from any such list, or by using “Unsubscribe” on any email you receive from us.)

We do not sell, trade, or distribute the information we collect from you to outside vendors or third parties unrelated to the services provided by TSS. This type of information may be disclosed to authorized regulatory authorities, upon request, as required by law.
