The Dayton School District has been 1-to-1 (1 device per student) since 2015. A majority of our students are assigned Chromebooks. Our younger students, kindergarten and first grade, use iPads. The purpose of educational technology is to access curriculum, resources, and activities that match grade level and district educational goals.
Student Data Privacy
State and Federal laws regulate the privacy of a student's personally identifiable information (PII). This can include any and all information that can be used to identify, locate, or contact and individual student; such as name, address, and student ID. This can also include a student's academic, health, and disciplinary records as well as information that can be combine to identify a student, like demographics and birth date.
How Does the Dayton School District Ensure Compliance With the Law
The Dayton School District is a member of the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC). The SDPC is a "collaborative of schools, districts, divisions, regional territories and state agencies, policy makers, trade organizations and marketplace providers addressing real-world, adaptable, and implementable solutions to growing data privacy concerns." More information on the SDPC can be found here: https://sdpc.a4l.org/
As part of the organization, the Dayton School District uses the National Data Privacy Agreement. The goal is to have this agreement sign by all vendors that deploy software within our district. The agreement covers what data is collected, how and where is it store, and much more.
District staff can request new apps and programs. These requests are fielded by our Teaching and Learning team in cooperation with our District Technology department. The app/ program is made available when the request has been reviewed and a student data privacy agreement is in place.
