Frequently Asked Questions

Parents

  • 1. Can I see the reports made by or about my child?

    Yes. Parents can fill out a form where they can request access to reports filed by their own children. Parents obtaining such information are legally responsible for any misuse or improper distribution of that information. Parents cannot access reports filed by the children of others.

  • 2. What if I don’t want my student to participate in the Bridgit system?

    Parents have the right to prevent their children from participating by notifying Bridgit in writing. Note that parental permission is required for all children under the age of 13.

  • 3. Can parents report on other parents?

    Yes, but such reports are only appropriate to the extent that they directly relate to an instance of a child being harassed or bullied.

  • 4. What if my child is under the age of 13?

    Students under the age of 13 must have parental permission to participate in Bridgit.

  • 5. If my child is mentioned in a report, will I be notified?

    No, unless the Moderator determines subject to the school’s policies that there is a genuine matter that requires further investigation or disciplinary action.

  • 6. If someone files an inaccurate report about my child’s behavior, what happens?

    The report is filed away as “inaccurate or false.” If the report was not filed in good faith or was filed for malicious purposes, the person filing the report may lose their account and, in extreme cases, be subject to legal action.
