BSD7 Privacy Practices

Our Commitment to You: Clear Privacy Practices

 In a world connected by the Internet, cloud services, online learning and mobile apps, parents and guardians want assurances that their children’s data is protected by our school system. We share your concerns around privacy.

 What do we collect and why?

 School Operations: We collect data such as addresses and phone numbers, as well as information about each of our students, for example, gender and age, to help run our school operations efficiently.

 Measuring Progress and Participation of our Students: We collect data such as demographics, attendance, grades and participation in school-sponsored and extra-curricular activities to make sure that students get the most out of their school experience.

 Improving the Education Program and Meeting Needs of Students: The results we get from tests and assessments give teachers, administrators and parents important information about the performance of our schools and the education programs we offer.  We may also conduct surveys and seek feedback in other ways so that we can monitor and adjust how we use our school facilities, improve the learning climate and address other issues important to students and parents.

 How is Education Data Protected?

We follow federal and state education privacy laws, as well as district policies for security.  We are working to improve your child’s education and make it more personalized and effective. We cannot accomplish this goal without collecting data.  Protecting the data in responsible ways is at the heart of our efforts to provide a richer and more dynamic learning experience for all students.

 If you have any questions, please contact your building principal.
