Student Data Privacy

March 06, 2023

What is SOPPA?

What happens to the student data that we send to a third-party vendor? Information like names, birthdates, etc... may be provided by Wesclin School District #3 to a third party like Teacherease, SeeSaw, Aimsweb, etc... What protections do those companies have in place to make sure that our student's data is not sold or freely given to others? This is exactly what SOPPA looks to address.

As part of SOPPA, these companies must enter into Data Privacy Agreements (DPA) with each district they work with. These agreements outline what data is stored, how it is protected, what the company can and cannot do with that data, and what they will do in the event of a data breach.


Data Privacy Agreements (DPA)

O'Fallon School District 90 leverages the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC), which is a unique collaborative of schools, districts, regional, territories and state agencies, policy makers, trade organizations and marketplace providers addressing real-world, adaptable, and implementable solutions to growing data privacy concerns. If you would like to read more about the SDPC, click here. Through the SDPC we enter into contracts with 3rd party vendors who handle our student's data. If you would like to view the DPAs that Wesclin Unit School District #3 currently holds, please click the following link.
