 Ever heard the phrase, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch”? Well, there’s no such thing as a free app, either! What are we exchanging when we click “agree” without reading the privacy policy? When it comes to our students, it is important to know. This webinar will introduce learners to the legal and ethical obligations school districts have to protect student data while providing access to important digital tools. Learners will learn what to look for in a privacy policy to ensure that their students’ personally identifiable information is protected. Suggestions for collaboration and resources for identifying safe tools will also be shared.








Learning Objectives:


Describe school professionals’ obligation to protect digital student data


 Identify markers of a safe privacy policy


 Identify other stakeholders to collaborate with
