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
