Your solution would technically solve the problem. What it doesn't solve is the perception of the problem. Administration will, in all probability, still maintain that confidentiality is being violated. In this case, it will be easier to use a human reader who can sign an agreement. Your administration will understand a human they can see, it is doubtful they will understand one they cannot.

Hello, I can understand confidentiality can be an issue when using this service in the classroom. One suggestion I would have is to have students write their name on the back of the paper so that the representative helping you read the homework would not know the personal information of the student. If this is not possible because the homework is more than one page, you could give each student a number so that that is the only thing displayed on the paper. I?m really new to all of this so this might not help you. I hope it does though

I used it to get help reading something that the second grader couldn?t read so that I could help him.  I?ve also used it to put together poster board presentations for the kids as part of an assignment.
