Data Release and Consent
We hope you will allow your child to participate in SummerCollab’s study to measure our programming’s impact. This study will assess your child’s growth during both the summer and the academic school year; specifically, we will measure growth in literacy, critical thinking, and sense of self. Impact will be measured through data collected during the summer and data shared by the Colonial School District. Data sharing between SummerCollab and districts is only applicable to students who attend Colonial District Schools. If you agree to participate, SummerCollab will collect data related to literacy, critical thinking, and sense of self during your child’s participation in Tyler’s Camp at Castle Hills. Additionally, SummerCollab will ask the Colonial School District (if applicable) for your child’s test scores from 3 tests over the course of the last school year. SummerCollab will also receive data from an upcoming Fall 2023 test, in addition to basic demographic information. When SummerCollab sees school district data, it will be anonymized by ID number, and at no time will SummerCollab know the name of the student attached to the data. Your child’s privacy is our priority; all data sharing between SummerCollab and the school districts will be in full compliance with Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the federal education data privacy law.
I hereby grant permission to Colonial School District to share with SummerCollab all requested forms and information, including my child’s emergency contact information, health forms, and relevant permissions. Additionally, I grant permission for the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services to share with SummerCollab and the Colonial School District all requested forms and information related to eligibility and receipt of public assistance for reporting purposes. I attest that my child is fit for and medically able to participate in Tyler’s Camp activities. I understand that Tyler’s Camp activities have inherent risks and on behalf of my child I hereby assume all risks and hazards incident to my child’s participation. In consideration for permitting my child to attend Tyler’s Camp, I hereby forever waive, release and give up any and all claims, demands, liability, damages, costs and expenses of any kind whatsoever, including property loss, personal injury, or wrongful death, against The Summer Learning Collaborative, Inc., Colonial School District and each of their respective agents, employees, officers, directors, participants, coaches, instructors, transportation providers, contractors, volunteers, other representatives, and heirs, which may arise from my child’s attendance at, participation in, or transportation to/from Tyler’s Camp.
