The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), and its Texas state affiliate chapter, The Texas K-12 CTO Council, are honored to support the work of current and aspiring superintendents and district leadership teams in leading all aspects of digital learning transformations.
As school leaders continue to grow in their knowledge and expertise in using data to drive instruction and other multiple facets of school operations, the issue of leading and managing student data privacy can sometimes seem confusing and even overwhelming. CoSN is pleased to share a one-page critical issues document that covers the five critical guidelines for ensuring data privacy in your district’s or school’s use of technology, available here.
To assist school leaders in assuring all stakeholders that their district has built a system and culture of trust and transparency with regard to student data, CoSN developed a comprehensive process for school districts to earn the Trusted Learning Environment (TLE) Seal. Learn more about how and why the TLE Seal can support your data privacy work here.
CoSN continues with Season 2 of the CoSN/edWeb EmpowerED Superintendent edWebinar Series on Monday, October 14, 2019, at 5 p.m. ET. The focus for the October webinar will be on Student Data Privacy. Learn more about the series, register for upcoming webinars and access recordings of previously broadcast webinars.
