Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA)
District 35 takes the privacy and online safety of our students very seriously. We have always taken steps to guard closely the student data collected within our networks or by the online resources we use in our schools. Effective July 1, 2021, all school districts are required by the Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA) to provide additional guarantees that student data is protected when collected by educational technology companies and that the data is used for beneficial purposes only. The goal of SOPPA aligns with District 35's goals to increase transparency, protect student data, and protect our students.
The list includes the online services or applications that the District uses, the contracts signed by the District, and any data collected by those tools or by the District. Prior to adding any new app or software, teachers and staff submit a form to request the District to verify if an application or tool is SOPPA compliant. The District regularly updates and verifies applications and tools.
Parents can request to review and correct any information maintained by the District or any online/application provider by contacting the District 35 privacy officer, Randy Saeks.
District 35 will post details here about data breaches involving 10% or more of the District's students, including the number of students whose covered information was involved in the breach, date of breach (or estimate) and operator name.
Parents play a key role in overseeing the online safety of their children. ConnectSafely, a nonprofit dedicated to educating users of connected technology about safety, privacy, security and digital wellness, developed a series of parent guides to help parents navigate the digital world with their children.
