My kids go to the local non-profit community run kindergarten. (3-5 year olds)
At the moment, the teachers take pictures of the kids during the day, and then put these on a laptop at the front of the class so the parents can view them when they come to pick up the kids. I find that the parents are usually in a rush or busy talking, so very few actually look at the pictures.
So I was thinking to suggest to them to upload the pictures somewhere so that the parents could view them at a time more convinient and also keep them forever if they wish.
I would put them in a site which is password protected (a different password for each class) and at the start of the year the parents are issued with the password.
I am curious to know if there are any rules/laws about doing this concerning privacy laws or anything else? Would you need to get the parents permission? What if one parent objected or complained? Would you need to remove the pictures after the school year?
if anyone could give me a hint as to where i might find info on this it would be great!
Also can anyone suggest the best photo hosting site for hosting such pictures. I currently use smugmug and rate it highly, but not sure if there is a more appropriate site for schools?
