This week, Google updated our YouTube approval tool to now allow JCS Staff to approve YouTube Channels as well as individual videos. A channel is a collection of videos organized by a user. It is important to understand that approving a channel allows all students in JCS to view all videos currently on the channel as well as any videos added to the channel in the future by the user.
It is critical to understand this implication when approving a YouTube channel as you are approving videos for ALL students in JCS, not just your current students. It is our recommendation at this time to NOT approve any channels except for channels you create and manage. This ensures the safety of all students in JCS.

Please share this information with your staff!
