The 21st century, technology-enabled classroom offers many opportunities and a variety of challenges, including ensuring the privacy and security of student data. The days of storing student information on paper files have shifted to data management on the network, in the cloud and on devices. With that, community stakeholders have raised concerns and questions have risen about where the data goes, who has access to it, how it may be used, and how it can be protected from prying eyes.
These questions have led to the drafting of over 500 student data privacy bills across the states in the last three years. However, regulatory action alone will not move the needle on the special relationship between schools and their communities.
