Educator Resources

When considering a new digital resource (free or paid, app or web-based) it’s imperative that teachers and schools look at what student data, if any, will be provided to the vendor and whether or not the vendor is committed to protecting the data as required under FERPA and the Colorado Student Data Transparency and Security Act.

The following resources are available to help teachers, staff, and administrators evaluate and select digital resources that appropriately protect student data.
