Student Data Protection and Privacy

The Board of Education (Board) is committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment for students, in both physical and virtual settings. The use of digital platforms, including online services or mobile applications for general district operations and curricular has and will continue to grow in a 21st century district. With student information used in many of these platforms, the risk that this information could be distributed, lawfully or otherwise, also grows. The Board has implemented this policy to protect student interests while promoting the innovative use of such platforms to provide students with a 21st century education.
