StartseiteStudent Data Privacy Agreement

SDPC alliances have created influential national agreements in several states such as California and Massachusetts. In recent years, other government alliances have increasingly adapted the California and Massachusetts versions of the agreements in their own states to reduce the burden of contracting with their service providers. Due to the growing popularity of DPAs at the state level and the requirement to conclude basic agreements for their alliances, the SDPC has established a working group to create a national set of standards that are as consistent as possible with current laws, requirements and business practices. For more than a year, the sdpc working group – made up of lawyers, district officials, business representatives and non-profit organizations, including the FPF – met to create the NDPA. The working group also added sections that allow Edtech districts and companies to include information that was challenging in previous DPAs, such as. B descriptions of the services provided by the companies, terms relating to State law and changes to standard conditions. In the course of next year, SDPC alliances at the national level will create state-specific clauses allowing them to incorporate single requirements of their national legislation into the NDPA. However, it is often extremely difficult to conclude individual contracts with each service provider to ensure this protection, both for counties and businesses. Each DPA may require different levels of sharing, control, and protection with respect to student data. .
