CSAT – CIS Controls Self-Assessment Tool
The CIS Controls Self-Assessment Tool, or CIS CSAT, is a free web application that enables security leaders to track and prioritize their implementation of the CIS Controls. For each CIS Control and sub-control, CSAT helps organizations track its documentation, implementation, automation, and reporting.
CIS Controls V7.1 Implementation Groups
The CIS Controls Implementation Groups take a “horizontal” look across all of the CIS Controls and identify a set of Sub-Controls to provide a simple and accessible way to help organizations of different classes focus their security resources.
Reasonable Security Practices
The Learning Technology Center selected 43 security best practices that all districts should implement to comply with the Student Online Personal Protection Act. The practices align with CIS Controls, a globally recognized cybersecurity standard, and are vetted by Illinois school district technology leaders.

LTC SPARK District Check-In
Created for districts to use on an ongoing basis, these forms will help administration monitor the social-emotional and physical wellbeing of their students and families. Two forms are available and both can be edited to fit the needs of the school/district. The first is for quick, weekly/biweekly input from parents and caregivers, focusing on family wellbeing. The second is an in-depth and involved survey that can be administered once a quarter, trimester, or semester. This survey will provide administrators a better look at overarching parent and caregiver concerns.
