About the Consortium

The Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC) is designed to address the day-to-day, real-world multi-faceted issues that schools, states, territories and vendors face when protecting learner information. SDPC’s vision is to develop common activities, artifacts, templates, tools and effective practices that can be leveraged through a unique collaborative of end users and marketplace providers working together.

“While I commend the various legislative and organizations beginning to address the issue of student data privacy, the “high level” recommendations, guidance, certifications, etc. are difficult if not impossible to keep organized and more importantly implement at the district level. In my role as the CIO of Cambridge Schools in Massachusetts, I and my peers at the school level, need on the ground tactics and tools that help us reach the high bar set for us as student data stewards”
Steve Smith
Chief Information Officer, Cambridge Public Schools

Interoperability & Privacy Symposium 2020

Dates: March 18-19, 2020

The Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC) and Access 4 Learning (A4L) Community, together with several Partners, will be hosting two days of “tactical” data interoperability and privacy conversations with real-world work products.   While many are focused on managing the interoperability and privacy of student data, only A4L is addressing both in the same place at the same time. 

Audience: This event will be of interest to any/all School District and State Leaders committed to data privacy and data exchange.  Keynote speakers include CEDS, Future of Privacy Forum, PTAC, Project Unicorn, SIIA, and numerous state and local CIOs – all the major players! 

Sessions include: privacy complexities; setting a foundation for interoperability; working ‘Strategies’ session; an overview of Massachusetts ‘Data Hub’; as well as valuable takeaways for participants to implement in their own institutions!
Places are limited to 40-60 attendees.
