Our computer teacher will not put any artwork by my students (elementary) on
our school web page if their name appears anywhere. I made all these great
labels with the school name, the title of the work(s), the medium and of
course the student's name! She says it has to be on the BACK because of
legal reasons. I noticed that Woody's site and many others put the child's
name near the artwork, so I was wondering. Anyone know the truth? Should I
have some "disclaimer" signed by all the parents so that I can have a few on
our web page? Should I just contact these parents as the artwork is chosen
throughout the year? Any primary teacher knows the old trick of having them
put their names on FIRST so that as you walk around you can say "Oh Johnny!"
or "Oh Lisa, that is so lovely!" Especially at the start of the school year.

>>Video sounds great....but
As I recall...
You can get into some legal trouble videoing students without a permission
slip...Maybe it's our district acting a little panicked about legal
stuff...but you may want to check on your district policy.
