Student Privacy: More guidance from U.S. Department of Education (April 2015 School Leader Update)
The U.S. Department of Education’s Privacy and Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) has released “Model Terms of Service” Guidance and a video on Protecting Student Privacy While Using Online Educational Services. This guidance addresses privacy issues that may surface as a result of online educational tools that you may be using in your district.
The video is intended to be used as a teacher training tool for k-12 school officials to educate officials on how to better protect student privacy while using these online educational services. This may be a useful tool for school districts to use on professional development days or in-service days.
