As citizens, students, educators, parents, employees, and consumers, we all have concerns about maintaining the privacy of our personal data. For school districts, assuring student data privacy is a multi-stakeholder priority, and it touches every aspect of operations—from student transportation to instruction, assessment to athletics, and counseling to community initiatives. Today and going forward, student data privacy policies and their implementation are hardwired to governance, discipline, purchasing, and communications practices. Assessing privacy and compliance policies and practices related to your system-wide use of technology is a continual priority.

This edWeb podcast covers five critical guidelines for ensuring data privacy in any school system’s use of technology. Superintendents and district leaders will learn how to make student data privacy a district-wide priority. Strategies for communicating their district’s commitment to assuring student data privacy are shared by the superintendents and CTO on the edWebinar panel. Additionally, the project director for CoSN’s Privacy Initiative and Trusted Learning Environment Program shares information about how school districts can earn CoSN’s Trusted Learning Environment Seal and why that process benefits stakeholders across a district.

This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.
