Data Privacy Frequently Asked Questions

The new privacy law can be overwhelming, so we will try to answer questions here.
Q: Can I use software this is not on the list?
A: Theoretically, you should not be using online resources, which require students to log on, if they are not on the list.

Q: I put in a request using the Online Request form but I have not yet heard back. Now what?
A: You will be notified if the district has successfully received an Ed Law 2d agreement form with the company you requested.  If you have not heard anything yet, that means we do not yet have an agreement with that company.  Free products are especially difficult to obtain agreements from. You need to consider using alternate products that have been approved, in the event your request does not result in an agreement.

Q: What is the danger in using an unapproved product?
A: Unfortunately, not every vendor has the best intentions regarding the protection of our student data. Imagine the worst-case scenario where one of our students has their identity stolen, or confidential information leaked, as a consequence of your use of an approved product.
