Get parent permission for artwork, photographs, and
use of technology. Here are some samples to
get you started.
Remember, I'm a teacher, not a lawyer, and this is not intended to give any legal advice.
As always, check any permission forms you use with your local administrators and local counsel. I do hope this list will help dispel the myth that you can't do that.
There are teachers doing creative things all around the world and getting permission. Just search, you can find even more than this.
I will update this list in 2 places:

18 Permission Form Samples
1. Artsonia sample permission form
This is an online art museum for student work. This permission form is used by artsonia, a student online art museum. It is a great place to participate and share artwork. Also, I like how artsonia allows parents to moderate the comments left on their child's artwork. This form also asks for parent volunteers. This is a nice way to share your student's best work.
This is the photo permisison form used by the state of New Jersey schools. I'm not sure if you should be required to specifically notify parents that photo recognition software is available. I do like the different levels of permission but am not sure how they track it in photos, etc. This seems like it would be a bit of a struggle, I guess it would have to be done with the use of colored dots on field trips, etc.
