A student privacy program is designed to help districts meet legal and ethical requirements for protecting student information in education records. An effective district privacy program includes policies and procedures that protects students from harm (e.g., identity theft, discrimination, predatory activity); and protects the district from harm (e.g., loss of public confidence, administrative burden of investigating a breach, alienating parents, financial loss).
Join the conversation and learn how to identify what your program is missing, strategies for closing those gaps, and hear from other districts in the state already addressing this need.
