There has been no shortage of laws and policies in recent years attempting to address student privacy concerns. These reflect a growing recognition that student privacy must be addressed seriously. For school districts, implementing good privacy practices and complying with laws can be daunting.

FPF Director of Education Privacy and Policy Counsel Amelia Vance will be co-leading sessions on federal laws (FERPA, COPPA, and PPRA), state laws and trends, and resources for administrators. There will also be a session on privacy best practices from other districts and hands-on exercises for participants.

The bootcamp will equip participants with the tools they need to implement responsible privacy practices, no matter the size of their district.

Other speakers include Steve Smith, Founder of the Student Data Privacy Consortium and Chief Information Officer of Cambridge Public Schools, Michael Hawes, Director of Student Privacy at the U.S. Department of Education, and more.
