ONLINE CONSENT PORTALhttps://consent.sd62.bc.ca

Phase 1, The parent page – This is where parents login to provide and/or review consents for their children.
• When using the system for the first time, parents must use the front page to request an access number (which acts as their password).
• Parents use the verification number to gain entry. From there, they can provide consent to the 7 activities. If your student is not listed, please make sure that the email address used is the same email address your students school has on file.

1. Freshgrade (online tool)-not all teachers use Freshgrade and not required at Colwood at this time.
2. GAFE (Student Access to Google Apps for Education)
3. Media Release
4. KEV School Cash Online-great tool to be used more in Middle and High schools but we can begin to collect funds for things like agendas, grad hoodies, field trips etc. Eliminating the need for cash and cheques. More info on that process to come.
5. Short (Walking) Field Trips
6. Internet Access –

  1. Aboriginal Education Self Identification form

When do the Consents expire?
• Some consents (namely GAFE, KEV, and FreshGrade) expire once a student leaves the district and/or graduates.
• Some consents last one school year
• The system tracks the expiry of these consents. To renew a consent year to year (for Internet access, as an example) a parent simply reconnects to the system next school year.  The system will note that the consent has expired and will give parents an opportunity to renew their permission.

How do you sign up for these consents?
Step 1 – go to: https://consent.sd62.bc.ca
Step 2 – Add your email address
Step 3 –  A verification number will be sent your email address within a couple minutes. Make note of your SD62 email verification number
Step 4 – Enter the verification number
Step 5 – Click on the Consents and choose, “I do give consent”.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 250-478-2332, nkowalko@sd62.bc.ca or in person in the front office. I’m happy to assist you when I can.
