Student data is a critical component for navigating student success and making informed decisions within any school system. Today’s highly connected learning environments present real challenges when it comes to balancing technology advances with the need to protect both student privacy and school data.

In this edWebinar three superintendents review five critical guidelines for ensuring data privacy in any school system’s use of technology. They will share how their leadership teams make data privacy a priority across an entire school system. Effective strategies for communicating their district’s commitment to assuring student data privacy will also be reviewed.

Additionally, the project director for CoSN’s Privacy Initiative and Trusted Learning Environment Program shares information about how school districts can earn CoSN’s Trusted Learning Environment Seal and why that process benefits stakeholders across a district. Each of the superintendents on the edWebinar panel represents a school district that has earned the Trusted Learning Environment Seal. They will discuss how they each led that process in their own districts and the lessons learned along the way.

This edWebinar will be of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
