Student Data Privacy

Knowing & Understanding

With the tremendous variety of applications involving student data, there is an overarching district responsibility of knowing, understanding and compliance of Federal and State laws surrounding student data privacy and protection. 

Diamond Lake School District 76 takes the privacy of our student's data seriously. Our Student Data Privacy page is dedicated to transparently inform our stakeholders and illustrate our compliance with the Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA).

What is SOPPA?

What happens to the student data that we send to a third party vendor?  Information like names, birthdates, etc... may be provided by District 76 to a third party such as Renaissance, Seesaw, PowerSchool, etc.  What protections do those companies have in place to make sure that our student's data is not sold or freely given to others?  This is exactly what SOPPA looks to address.

As part of SOPPA, these companies must enter into Data Privacy Agreements (DPA) with each district they work with.  These agreements outline what data is stored, how it is protected, what the company can and cannot do with that data, and what they will do in the event of a data breach.
