Student Data Privacy and Safety Online

STUDENT DATA PRIVACY

Protecting student information and privacy both on and offline is a critical part of our data security plan.  Every educational software package, website, and app comes with a lengthy Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Those are the legal-looking documents we all usually agree to without reading or even giving a second thought.  The school district subscribes to a service from Educational Framework called EdPrivacy to help ensure the software and websites that our students use are compliant with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), Familiy Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and other student data privacy regulations.

STUDENT SAFETY ONLINE

The school district subscribes to multiple state of the art services that help to ensure our students safety online.  

Lightspeed Systems Content Filtering helps to ensure compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) by blocking access to inappropriate content on websites. While this filtering solution is very effective, the district cannot guarantee that access to all inappropriate sites will be blocked.
