The data analytics tool CatchOn has released its new guide, Establishing a Robust Student Data Privacy Culture―Action Ideas for School Districts, which is designed to provide school districts with a concise overview of federal student data privacy laws along with five action ideas they can implement in their own systems. Written in collaboration with Reg Leichty, Founding Partner of Foresight Law + Policy, and the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA), this guide presents practical ideas district leaders can implement to make data privacy a prominent part of the fabric of classrooms, schools, and school districts.

This paper also highlights key federal and state student data privacy expectations and requirements that educators and administrators should understand. 

In addition to its federal student data privacy overview, CatchOn is creating state-specific guides that outline and summarize each state’s student data privacy laws and regulations.
