Technology Use and Student Privacy
The SAU41 School District is committed to student privacy using best practices in our management of student information in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
The SAU41 School District will not share personally identifiable information with third party software providers unless there is a valid educational interest for students. The SAU41 School District has implemented a best practice protocol for reviewing new online resources for potential use within the District. Only online websites and tools that are deemed appropriate in meeting instructional goals, as well as adhere to legal requirements protecting student privacy and data will be approved for use by students. More information on this process can be found here. In some cases, parents may receive a separate permission request from a student’s teacher to use an approved online application or tool with their student.
