The Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC) powered by Access 4 Learning has developed a Privacy Contract Framework for schools and educational service providers. SDPC leveraged the work done by the Massachusetts Student Privacy Alliance (MSPA) to create a “common contract” for usage in school districts across the state. MSPA worked in collaboration with schools, districts, regional and state agencies, policymakers, and marketplace providers to create the Privacy Contract Framework.
“The clear expectation by establishing the contract and the partnership has benefited districts and even the vendors working with them. Project ‘Track One’ is designed for schools, districts or regional organizations/associations or state agencies that do not yet have a model/template contract designed specifically for their jurisdiction. Project ‘Track Two’ is designed for schools, districts or regional 2 organizations/associations or state agencies that do have a model/template contract designed specifically for their jurisdiction and are ready to create a jurisdictional specific alliance for the purpose of utilizing shared model contracts. Both tracks will utilize SDPC products and services to create and implement common contracts and specific jurisdictional alliance.”
