Student Data Privacy
We believe that it is vital for all students in the Westport Public Schools to be able to efficiently and effectively use digital tools that empower them in all phases of the learning process, including research, problem solving, content creation, communication, and collaboration. We also believe that we must be committed at all times to protecting students' privacy and providing them with a powerful and safe educational experience. To that end, the Westport Public Schools follow the legal requirements to ensure the safety and security of all students and staff while using any technology resource or outside contractor
In compliance with Connecticut State Law, we have posted a list of online programs used within the district that house student data along with the types of data stored within each program. The programs may be used district-wide, in a very small number of classrooms, or with individual students. The list will be updated each time the district enters into a new contract where student data is housed.
Also in compliance with Connecticut State Law, we will post a list beginning October 1, 2016 of all outside contractors that need access to student data to provide services to the district. These services may be provided to students may be used district-wide, in a very small number of classrooms, or with individual students.
