Parental Consent for Flipgrid

For kids to submit video questions to MCYU grids

Dear Parent or Guardian:

This year we’ll be working with an exciting new tool to increase student engagement in our MCYU community. Flipgrid is the leading video discussion platform used by tens of millions of PreK to PhD educators, students, and families in more than 180 countries. Flipgrid allows us to spark a classroom discussion by providing a platform for your child to submit questions in short videos, where a few submissions will be selected and featured in an official MCYU video, to be answered by an expert. Another use would be to share short video responses based on questions, posed by MCYU. This will help create an inclusive dialogue and engage with them in a fun and meaningful way.

We think Flipgrid will be a wonderful addition to our MCYU community, so we are asking for your permission for your child to use Flipgrid. Please review Flipgrid’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy >( In order to use Flipgrid some personal information about your child may be collected, but this information will be protected as Flipgrid describes in their Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

Please read these policies carefully, let us know if you have any questions, and then check the box below to indicate you’ve read this and allow your child to participate. Then email your consent to us by selecting "Send." If you don’t agree to provide consent for your child to participate, please do not allow your child to use the Flipgrid code distributed in class or by email.
