Privacy and Student Data: Why Educators Need to Pay Attention Too

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

You keep hearing about data privacy and breaches, but what does it mean for you? Isn’t that something the IT folks take care of? In this session, for all educators AND IT folks, we will take you through our district’s story. Learn what made us sit up and take notice, what process and procedures we put in place, how we communicated that to educators in all schools, and why we’re committed to continuously improving the process. This impacts all of us and requires the attention of all as well. We need to make sure that our student, family, and educator data is kept safe and secure.
Presented by Bonnie Birdsall, Director of Digital Learning & Communication, and Mike Kanfer, Director of Network Services.
