This document addresses the valid public concerns about appropriate access to, and use of, student data; the potential permanence of sensitive, personal records; and other related data privacy and security issues. This document addresses the important challenges of balancing the educational advantages associated with effective data connections and use with strong privacy protections for PII across the education continuum (P-20) and into the workforce (P-20W). This document addresses CEPI’s education data privacy, access and security as comprehensively as possible, drawing from federal and state laws, terms of use policies, missions and best practices. This document avoids presenting a one-size-fits-all solution, recognizing the specific context of how data can be used to empower stakeholders about the state of education in Michigan.
