CoSN (the Consortium for School Networking) stands at the forefront of helping school systems utilize technology in the classroom and manage their data privacy and security responsibilities. We provide concrete tools to clarify the steps needed to align with the regulatory requirements and set high standards around protecting student data.
Through participation in the TLE program, school systems commit to high compliance standards and continuous examination and evolution of privacy practices.
Leadership Practice: manage and collaborate with stakeholders regarding the use and governance of student data to inform instruction
Classroom Practice: implement educational procedures and processes to ensure transparency while advancing curricular goals
Data Security Practice: perform regular audits of data privacy and security practices and publicly detail these measures
Business Practice: establish acquisition vetting processes and contracts that, at minimum, address applicable compliance laws while supporting innovation
Professional Development Practice: require school staff to conduct privacy and security training and offer the instruction to all stakeholders
