The Student Data Privacy Project
Do you have kids in public school?
Did you know that a federal law called FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) allows you to request data obtained on your kids ?
Historically, that meant name, address, phone number in the school directory. Now it includes all the metadata collected by EdTech vendors delivering curriculum in the classroom (Kami, Prodigy, Zoom, Google, Naviance, Nearpod, Class Dojo, etc.). There are hundreds if not thousands used by your school every day.
A group of four parents (from DC to Seattle), have created the Student Data Privacy Project after we asked our district for the data collected by vendors and were denied.
