Technology / Data Governance
Protecting our students’ and staff's privacy is an important priority and East Carter R-II Schools is committed to maintaining strong privacy and security protections. The privacy and security of this information is a significant responsibility and we value the trust of our students, parents, and staff. The District follows a comprehensive plan for securing our data that includes policies, administrative procedures, internal procedures and practices. This plan outlines how operational and instructional activity shall be carried out to ensure our data is accurate, accessible, consistent, and protected.
To accomplish the district’s mission and to comply with the law, the district may need to collect, create and store confidential information, including information regarding students, parents/guardians, employees, applicants for employment and others. The district will only do so when necessary and will take measures to keep this information confidential.
East Carter R-II Schools believes in the transparent use of data. Our Digital Resources page was established to share information with our parents, students and community regarding the use of student data and our commitment to data privacy. This space includes a list of digital resources that have been evaluated by the district. We feel that it is important that you not only know which resources have been approved, but also see which resources have been denied for district use and why.
