On Friday, the U.S. Department of Education released new non-binding guidance for school district leaders on the use and sharing of student data. The new guidance titled "Transparency Best Practices for Schools and Districts" suggests school districts consider adopting the following practices:

  • Publish an inventory of all data collected about students;
  • Post online all contracts that require the sharing of student information with third-party vendors;
  • Provide parents with a list of all online software and apps that are approved for classroom use, and
  • Be more "thoughtful and careful" in responding to parental inquiries and concerns.
