Please be sure to read this policy carefully before continuing to use the PVCS website.

PVCS works with School Pathways, a third-party vendor, to gather and maintain personally identifiable information for the purposes of student enrollment. Parents who choose to enroll their child at PVCS will be asked to provide the following via a website maintained by School Pathways:

  • Parent/guardian’s name;
  • Child’s name;
  • Home/work/cell phone numbers;
  • Home address;
  • Addresses of other family members;
  • Information regarding who has custody of your child; and
  • Household income.

Such information is only gathered to the extent necessary to facilitate student enrollment. Both PVCS and School Pathways will maintain such information in accordance with all applicable laws. The personally identifiable information provided will not be sold to third parties or otherwise disclosed under any circumstances, except when required by law.

Requesting Changes to Personally Identifiable Information

PVCS wishes to maintain the most up-to-date information possible regarding its parents and students in order to ensure that PVCS can quickly contact parents when necessary. If a parent needs to change any of the personally identifiable information listed above, please contact pvcsinfo@pacificview.org to notify PVCS of the changes.

Personal Information Provided by Parents About Children

PVCS understands that student users who are under thirteen (13) years of age need special safeguards and privacy protection. Accordingly, PVCS is committed to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) to the extent applicable. In order to help ensure student privacy, PVCS only receives personal information about its students directly from parents when the student is enrolled at PVCS. PVCS will not at any time collect personal information from children online.

Parents who enroll their child at PVCS are deemed to have consented to the child’s use of applicable PVCS online materials to the extent necessary to further the child’s educational experience at PVCS. Student information will be kept confidential in accordance with all federal, state, and local laws, including but not limited to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”).

If there are any questions regarding a student’s online activities as they relate to PVCS, please contact pvcsinfo@pacificview.org.
