The types and quantity of data that LEAs collect has changed dramatically since FERPA was first passed in 1974. In addition, the proliferation of the Internet in schools has led to the sharing of data being more decentralized; teachers can now sign students up on websites or use email to share student data around the world without having to get administrative permission. All of this has made maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of student data a greater challenge than ever before. This session is intended for superintendents and other administrative staff so we can discuss the problem at a high level within a rural context and demonstrate how data governance can be used to devise solutions to these challenges and centralize the way data are managed in the LEA.
