When are data privacy and effective data use in tension? How do we set up our systems for both student protection and progress? This session will guide you through the tools and resources available for implementing good data privacy policies and practices, from collection to use.

Through a series of small group discussions, you will gain an understanding of the legal and contractual, policy, and practice considerations for effectively connecting strong data privacy with effective data use. You will have the opportunity to engage with leading data privacy experts, dig into the some of the most complex aspects of student privacy, and learn about available resources and frameworks to ensure their district is using data well.
