We’re here at the Conrad Sulzer Library having a conversation about #StudentDataProtection .…
Meeting a great group of parents impacted and/or concerned about #StudentDataProtection.
We’re working on legislation at the state level. We need to talk about pushing for more awareness and guidelines at the district level -esp with new mayor and alderpeople this spring.
Lots of time and money being spent on digital tech in pub ed system but IL parents have little info about or control over their child’s personal data. #twill
We have questions! What’s data is being collected? What control do parents have over their children’s data?
What counts as student data? You may be surprised! #StudentDataProtection
What constitutes good student privacy policy?
Five principals to protect privacy from @Parents4Privacy
1. Transparency
2. Commercial-free
3. Security
4. Control
5. Enforcement
The Student Online Privacy Protection Act (SOPPA), current IL privacy legislation, was created without parents at the table. #StudentDataProtection
Here’s the existing laws and policies for #StudentDataProtection #StudentDataPrivacy:
Parent sharing the importance of citing laws when pushing for your child’s privacy at school.
Consider adding #StudentDataPrivacy training for admin and staff to your school’s Continuous Improvement Work Plan (CIWP)!
Taking a look at the The State Student Privacy Report Card from @Parents4Privacy @Network4pubEd
Although IL gets a C+ average for privacy protection, we get an F for transparency and a D for security. #StudentDataPrivacy #StudentDataProtection #twill
Discussion: All #CPS students have and use a Google account. How do parents feel about that?
Data —> $
Keeping data secure is expensive and ISBE guidelines aren’t always followed at the school level.
CPS has had 6 known data breaches since May 2015. #StudentDataPrivacy #StudentDataProtection
Parents given no choice but to share data in order to receive services or instruction.
Here’s highlights of the legislation we’re working on in Springfield #HB3606 (@robertmartwick) and #SB2089 (@SenatorAquino) #twill
Thanks to all the IL State Representatives who have signed on to #HB3606…
And the IL State Senators sponsoring #SB2089…
For more on why student data privacy is front and center on our legislative agenda:…
Reach out to your IL state Rep and Senator if they haven’t signed on and #StudentDataPrivacy and #StudentDataProtection is important to you! Have questions or need help getting started? We’re glad to chat:
Discussion: Often we hear that tech as a boon to our schools or even fundraise to increase tech. Important to understand how and why tech is used in our schools. #edtech #StudentDataPrivacy #StudentDataProtection
Discussion: what are the social emotional implications of increased #edtech requirements in schools and how do we bring the discussion to our schools?
Thanks to everyone for a lively conversation about student data privacy and protection. Thank you Karen Convery Lee for organizing and Emily Melbye COS for @RepAnnWilliams for joining us!
