The Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC) is an unique collaborative of schools, districts, regional, territories and state agencies, policy makers, trade organizations and marketplace providers addressing real-world, adaptable, and implementable solutions to growing data privacy concerns. The Consortium also leverages work done by numerous partner organizations but focuses on issues being faced by “on-the-ground” practitioners.
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.
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!
