Vendor 101

Chapter 2: The How

In 2015, a group of education end users, marketplace providers, and non-profits gathered to address a common and growing “pain point” for all that needed addressing – student data privacy!

The group agreed to establish a collaborative that would develop tools, effective practices and templates to support “tactical student privacy” between schools, states and vendors yet open-up opportunities for marketplace providers to simplify and expand their marketplace offerings.  Not wanting to create a new entity, the collaborative was formed under the non-profit Access 4 Learning Community.

Level Setting

How are the two related?

The A4L Community is the technical standards non-profit collaboration focused on interoperability and secure data exchanges.

The SDPC is a SIG under the A4L umbrella. 

Privacy AND interoperability in ONE place!
