Protecting Student Privacy While Using Online Educational Services (video)

Kentucky state law requires districts to have procedures in place to ensure the privacy and security of student Personally Identifiable Information (PII) stored in Internet-enabled services (the “cloud”) and to ensure that those cloud-based services themselves have their own privacy and security policies and that they do not sell student information for use by others. With that in mind, when loading information into a cloud-based service, ask yourself the following: 
1) Is it necessary? Is there a benefit to having the information in the cloud?
2) If the answer is yes, please refer to the lists below for how PII should be handled for commonly-used websites. (Please note that the list is not a district endorsement of any of these sites).
3) If a website you plan to load PII into is NOT on this list, stop! Contact the district technology department for help.
