With the goal of supplementing existing efforts, SIIA released the following Best Practices for the Safeguarding of Student Information Privacy and Security for Providers of School Services. These privacy and security best practices are intended as guidance for providers of educational services to educational institutions to the extent that they collect, disseminate, use or maintain personally identifiable information about students (student PII). These best practices can be used to inform the contracts that govern the relationship between providers of educational services and the educational institutions – school districts and schools – for which they work.
