Published: January 12, 2015

If our destination is improved student achievement, we cannot get there without valuing and effectively using data in education. Central to reaching this goal is building trust among all those who have a stake in education that individual student data, such as attendance, course taking, grades, and test scores, are being collected for meaningful purposes and kept safe, secure, and private. This document provides specific, practical recommendations for SEAs as they prioritize the safeguarding of student data and continuously review and update their data privacy policies and practices to address changes in technology.
