Interoperability & Privacy Symposium!


Venue: Churchill Hotel, 1914 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, DC 20009

April 14, 2020:  As you may have seen, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has postponed their Forum and STATS DC meeting scheduled for early July.  The A4L/SDPC Community was scheduled to hold our Interoperability & Privacy Symposium in conjunction with these NCES meetings.  


We are working with health professionals following the progression of the current pandemic, and our NCES partners, to determine the safest time to reschedule our Symposium.  We will send hotel / registration information and new days and times as soon as we can… so stay put and stay tuned!

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.  Invited keynote speakers include CEDS, CoSN, Future of Privacy Forum, PTAC, Project Unicorn, SIIA, and numerous state and local CIOs!

Places are limited to 40-60 attendees.
