The Role of Leadership

Developing a data privacy governance program is not the job of one person or one team.  It is a multi-stakeholder endeavor that requires school system executive leadership support.  In fact, one of the core practice areas of the TLE Seal Program deals with assurances about executive leadership involvement with and support for the school system’s student data protection efforts.

Earning support from executive leadership to participate in the TLE Seal Program will provide the foundation needed to move forward successfully with the program.  School system leaders know that protecting student data privacy is a top concern of parents, legislators and their peers.  They also appreciate that no governance program can be effective without their support.
