All educational organizations have a legal and ethical responsibility to maintain appropriate data privacy safeguards and promote ethical data use. All educators should develop a healthy understanding of state and federal laws impacting their work and embrace their role in upholding these rules to the best of their ability. Establishing useful policies, strong written agreements, and reliable data processing controls are foundations for building a capable privacy program.
