The Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC) and ITC IL have partnered to streamline privacy stewardship tasks for CIOs in all IL Districts. This workshop will show schools how to access these free tools and templates through the SDPC Resource Registry, which are in use across more than 9,000 schools in the US, addressing privacy issues schools face protecting learner information. The most impactful move of these has been the release of a new National Data Privacy Agreement (NDPA) being adopted across two dozen SDPC Alliances.
Penny Murray is the Community Director of the Access 4 Learning (A4L) Community, and its special interest group the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC), is a unique, non-profit collaboration composed of schools, districts, local authorities, states, US and International Ministries of Education, software vendors and consultants. The SDPC is designed to address the day-to-day, real-world multi- faceted issues faced when protecting learner information by setting common expectations between market providers and end users. The A4L Community has united these education technology end users and providers in an unprecedented effort to “connect and secure effective learning ecosystems” to give teachers more time to do what they do best: teach.
