Student Privacy

Privacy Contract Framework
The first project of the group was to leverage the great work done by the Massachusetts Student Privacy Alliance (MSPA) and their work around a "common contract" for usage across 40 districts. This project looks to exponentially leverage and expand upon this work.

Track one is designed for schools, districts or regional organizations/associations or state agencies that do not yet have a model/template contract designed specifically for their jurisdiction. Organizations entering into the project via tack one will utilize SDPC products and resources to assist with the development of a model/template contract. These resources will include model contract clauses, appropriate federal and state laws, examples of other jurisdiction's model contracts as well as interaction with the community members to develop a new model contract.

Track two is designed for schools, districts or regional organizations/associations or state agencies that do have a model/template contract designed specifically for their jurisdiction and are ready to create a jurisdictional specific alliance for the purpose of utilizing shared model contracts. Organizations entering into the project via track two will utilize SDPC products and services to create and implement a specific jurisdictional alliance. These resources will include an on line tool for the management of the contracting process by all alliance members, including inventoring applications, tracking contract status, posting contracts, and creating transparency with all stakeholders.

  • Develop a framework for identifying solutions that have on-the-ground and real-world impact on student data privacy enabling schools, districts, state and vendors find resources, adapt them to their unique context and implement needed protections
  • Identify solutions that meet the requirements of the framework


Legal Working Group:

Lead by Jim Siegl (Fairfax, VA), this group focused on taking various sources of contract languages, aligning them with USED PTAC clauses and then identified a minimum set of clauses to be a part of any contract plus optional suggested clause language.
 
Implementation Working Group:
Lead by Laura Hansen (Nashville, TN), this group focused on the various challenges needing addressed to successfully implement the Contract Framework. A Get Started Guide slide deck for Track one can be used for your organization's conversations on the project and the how and why's to get involved.
 
Technical Working Group:
Lead by Scott Gallant (Gallant Consulting), this group focused on leveraging the existing MSPA database work and expanded features and functionalities to allow for greater localization of contracts and tools to help both end users and the marketplace providers serving their needs.

Any member of the SDPC can propose items for consideration by the Consortium.
