Parent’s Guide to Student Data Privacy Now Available in Spanish!

The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF), Connect Safely, and the National PTA are proud to announce that the Parent’s Guide to Student Data Privacy is now available in Spanish, both on-line and in hard copy formats.

Last year, FPF partnered with ConnectSafely and the National PTA to create the Parent’s Guide to Student Data Privacy. This guide offers information specifically designed to provide parents with easy-to-understand FAQs explaining student rights to their educational data under current law. With the many recent changes in the role of technology in schools, and the increase in student data collected by schools and districts, it’s important that parents and student have a clear understanding of their rights to access and control over that information. This guide has been distributed to, and accessed on-line, by parents from schools across the country.  Thanks to a grant from Sheila Kaplan, we are now able to offer the Guide in Spanish as well. This will enable schools to reach an even wider audience and help educate more parents about their child’s data.

The guide is now available on FERPA|Sherpa here.
