Dear B.A. Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to the new 2012-2013 school year!
Please read the following information carefully, as it may affect your child's ability to participate in Artsonia as well as other online opportunities this year.
Over the years I have taken great pride in and derived much excitement and pleasure from being able to share student work and creative achievements online. It is important to note that last year our district Non-Consent Forms were updated.
Parents, your child/children will be receiving Media and Web Non-Consent Forms to bring home to you. Please note that if you sign and submit the 2012- 2013 South Brunswick School District Media and/or Web Release Non-Consent Forms to the school, your child will NOT have artwork featured on Artsonia http://www.artsonia.com/schools/school.asp?id=1620 _ this year. This means that your child will not have any artwork published online and will have all current artwork hidden. Even though you may have granted permission last year, the return of the Non- Consent Forms this year will remove your child from Artsonia and will prohibit publication on all and any district-hosted or district-approved websites. If you submit a Non- Consent Form, your child's gallery will be hidden by mid September.
However, if you do not submit a Non-Consent form, then your child's gallery will remain on Artsonia and your child will continue to have artwork published.
In addition, if you submit a Non- Consent form, you will eliminate the possibility for me to post photographs, selected work, and videos of your child working with other students and me in the art room on our B.A. Art Website (link to B.A. Art Website below) that will feature our B.A. Artsonia Gallery, a B.A. Vimeo Channel, the B.A. Art Blog, Engaging Art Activities, and our iPads in Art Website.
If you do nothing, and do not submit a Non-Consent Form, then you may possibly have the opportunity to see photos and/or videos of your child working with other students and me in the art room on our B.A. Art Website, B.A. Artsonia Gallery, B.A. Vimeo Channel and/or our B.A. Art Blog/News! (Link to B.A. Art Website Below)
Submit a Non-Consent Form = No Artsonia for Your Child and you will not be able to see your child in art related videos or working with other children and me in the art room. An override form can be offered to you if you submit a non media/web form. Learn more about this form below.
Do nothing and do not submit a Non-Consent Form= Your Child Will Continue To Have Artwork on Artsonia and you may possibly have the opportunity to see your child in art related videos and photographs working with other children and me.
Preview the new South Brunswick Media and Web Non-Consent Forms here:
Override Form: An override form can be made available to parents who want to only give permissions for me to post artwork and or photos/videos of students. This form would be made available to you if our records indicate that you have submitted a non web/media consent form. If you sign the override form, this means you only agree to allow me to post your child’s work and/or photo and video but do not grant general consent.
There are a lot of new and exciting things happening this year for our artists! Please be sure to check out our B.A. Art Website and sign up to receive automatic email alerts.
