SchoolMessenger Communicate Earns FERPA Badge

SchoolMessenger Communicate from West Corporation's Education group has received the FERPA privacy badge in recognition of its alignment with iKeepSafe's FERPA guidelines. SchoolMessenger Communicate (and its related InfoCenter app) are tools that help educational agencies and districts deliver school notifications and emergency alerts to parents by text message, voice call, email, and other means.

iKeepSafe's FERPA badge is the first independent assessment program for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The program seeks to help educators and parents identify edtech services and tools that protect student data privacy.

Products participating in the iKeepSafe FERPA assessment must undergo annual re-evaluation to continue displaying the iKeepSafe FERPA badge. For the evaluation, an independent privacy expert reviewed SchoolMessenger Communicate, its privacy policy and practices, as well as its data security practices.
