School Passport reduces exposure to PII mitigating risk and costs.

Comply with Data Privacy Regulations
Without Incurring Added Costs

PII Shield anonymizes data before it reaches your platform while still allowing for
personalization, authentication and communication with end users.

Personal Identifiable Information Is Used In Many Applications

School Passport’s PII shield offers all the benefits of using PII data while mitigating most of the cost and risk.

PII data is used to

Personalize user experiences

Saying “Hi Jane Doe” in your applicaiton means recieving PII.

Allow users to log in

Many applications use email addresses for user logins.

Create users accounts

Storing first name, last name, email means you’re storing PII.

Communicate with users

Applications use emails and phone number to engage users.

Accessing PII has costs too

Privacy Compliance

It takes an army of lawyers to track all the privacy legislation.

Complex Standards

Compling with SOC2 or ISO 27001 isn’t easy.

Security Audits

Penetration testing and vulnerability assessments are costly.


All the lawyers, standards and audits add up quickly.

Single sign-on is our bread and butter, you don’t need PII to allow access to your application. Just enable SSO with any of our open standards SAML, OAUTH or LTI.

Personalized Experience

What Schools and EdTech Vendors Say

  • As a mid-sized EdTech company, our biggest challenge has always been accessing SIS data from our schools. On our own, we only had interfaces built with three SIS companies in our region. GG4L has been a game-changer by immediately providing access to over 40 SIS companies, allowing us to expand our services from the central US to compete nationally!

    Teddy Gabbart

    President, Gabbart Communications
  • We are proud to be a Sponsor of this strategic initiative toward the improved safety of our schools and the lives of children. I am also glad to see GG4L emerging as the low-barrier distribution enablement platform for cloud-hosted EdTech solutions into schools by inviting socially responsible corporations to participate in large-scale sustainable impact initiatives in education.

    Brian Thomas

    CEO, Lightspeed Systems
  • The IMS Global conformance certification program ensures that educational institutions can be confident that their integrations are secure and fully interoperable with other certified products. Congratulations to Global Grid for Learning for joining in the growing IMS ecosystem by certifying the latest version of OneRoster!

    Dr. Rob Abel

    CEO, IMS Global Learning Consortium
  • The broad use of educational technology in our classrooms would not be possible without the help from School Passport. The GG4L dashboard allows us to focus on different application usage over differing periods of time to gauge level of usage by location.

    Jeannie Fox

    Alachua County Public Schools, IT system support analyst
  • Montgomery Public Schools has become involved with the Global Grid for Learning (GG4L) on multiple initiatives that are aimed toward school improvement. We are so grateful that GG4L has brought together solution providers and the funding to accomplish these important goals.

    Dr. Ann R. Moore

    Superintendent of Montgomery Public Schools, Alabama
  • I was skeptical of this system as I already knew I didn’t like Clever or ClassLink. Not only do you protect our data, it still belongs to us. AND, onboarding took no time at all. It was pretty seamless.
