We’ve seen a number of myths and fears arise about

    • The scope and type of student data collected and the privacy of those data
    • Who is collecting and accessing student data
    • The role of 3rd party service providers
  • Emerging concerns reflect a broadening of the conversation
    • Teachers and schools are using cloud based and other free tools;
    • Students are using school-sanctioned social networking or communication tools

states must
States Must:
  • Ensure parents and educators find value in the data that is collected and understand the “who, what, where, and when” of data collection and use.
  • Communicate with stakeholders, at every opportunity, to dispel myths and clarify the value of data to teaching, learning, and decision making.
  • Promote, enact and continuously review and update privacy, security, and confidentiality policies that are proactive and constructive rather than prohibitive.
