Student Data and Privacy

The District’s privacy standards are established in accordance with applicable federal and state law and Board policy, and are intended to reflect the District’s mission and values. These guiding concepts are intended to provide direction about many elements of the District’s practice, including the educational value of instructional technology, the primacy of children’s safety, and the importance of family rights.

The district uses filters and firewalls to prevent students from accessing harmful information on the Internet as well as to protect the privacy of student information. To further determine whether websites, software, or apps are safe to use as part of instructional programming, the district is also leveraging an updated Data Processing Agreement (DPA) to determine whether or not the particular website, software, or app has adequate privacy measures to protect student data.
