Organization: Louisiana Department of Education
Published: October 1, 2016

Louisiana’s Data Governance and Privacy Guidebook provides a framework for establishing data governance at the local educational agencies (LEA) and school level. It attempts to offer best practices, action steps, and responsibilities regarding data governance and student privacy; however, it is not intended to provide legal advice, and the laws referenced in this guidebook may not be exhaustive. LEAs and schools should contact their legal counsel for any questions or concerns about laws, policies, and practices regarding protection of student privacy and the sharing of student information and data.
