SDPC Preferred Provider Program

The Student Data Privacy Consortium’s (SDPC) focuses on collaborative activities and not attempt to replace products or services available in the marketplace allowing for ingenuity and opportunities for vendors to be a part of this trusted Community.

Recently, there have been multiple requests from local and state agencies for additional legal, implementation, professional learning, etc. support.  These additional “services” requested may or may not be in the core activities of, but are impacted by, the Consortium tools, effective practices, etc.   The SDPC leadership do not wish to enter into competition with community members but also want to play a leadership role in supporting the numerous requests from members to make the Project a success.  In an attempt to balance these factors, the SDPC Preferred Provider Program (P3) has been developed.
