On Friday, March 21, 2014, the Consortium of School Networks (“CoSN”), with the help of the Cyberlaw Clinic, released an in-depth, step-by-step privacy guide — the “Protecting Privacy in Connected Learning Toolkit” — to help school system leaders navigate complex federal laws and related issues. Issued as part of CoSN’s new Protecting Privacy in Connected Learning initiative, the toolkit addresses compliance with laws such as the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”) and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and offers smart practices to better protect student privacy and their data. CoSN is the premier professional association for schools system technology leaders, aiming to empower educational leaders to leverage technology to realize engaging learning environments.
