Schools are faced with an inherent responsibility to protect the private data of their students and staff. As the use of edtech proliferates throughout schools, it becomes more and more difficult for districts to control how school PII is managed by edtech vendors. School districts face enormous challenges:
- Lack of control over how school PII is managed by vendors
- Keeping school data safe and private
- Stopping the spread of school PII to an ever-growing list of vendors
- Liability and cost of stolen PII
- Concern with the reputational damage from a data privacy breach
- Providing adequate compliance with data privacy laws
So how do they address this growing risk without removing the very edtech solutions that are advancing their ability to provide an enriched education to their students? The short answer? Stop using traditional rostering services.
What Are the Privacy Risks of Using Traditional Rostering Services?
Traditional rostering services often offer privacy policies loaded with promise that have no security behind them to ensure the safety of your PII. In fact, the way traditional rostering services work increases a school’s risk dramatically, because each time the school selects a new edtech vendor with which to work, the traditional rostering service simply copies all of the PII over to the vendor. Do that an average of 1,403 times per school district, and the personal information of your students is suddenly at an exponential risk.
