Greetings Baruch College,

You have been more than generous with me in regards to answering my questions. I didn’t think that there was anything we didn’t cover but there is one more thing and you’re the only one that will know the official answer. 

If you have time for me great, if not I’ll make the best of the situation like I always do and treat everyone with the utmost respect like always. 

Of course, it’s been well established that getting into groups and pairs with students in classes is mandatory. That’s one hundred percent understood and respected. 

The new thing that I just learned about is unsupervised student interaction outside of the classroom in person and via the phone. 

My question for you if possible is can unsupervised student interaction outside of the classroom be mandatory and the sharing of personal information, for example, phone numbers, Zoom info, etc.?

I was just getting comfortable with student interaction in supervised classrooms, now I’m learning about unsupervised student pairs and the sharing of a lot of personal information outside of class. 

As you know because you have been more than generous with me in regards to your time, I’m street homeless. 

I can’t imagine parents would want their children sharing personal information and meeting outside of class with street homeless people.

Please advise if possible. 

Thank you again and have a great day.
