Student Data & Privacy

Student safety, data, and privacy are an utmost concern for Fairview District 72. When selecting products, companies, and third party contractors to work with, the district ensures that our partners are in compliance with all state and federal laws especially when it comes to our students and staff.  This includes following state & federal laws when it comes to the selling and/or purchasing data.  

Fairview complies with Illinois and federal law in regards to student safety and data protection.  We are in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA), and the Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA).

  • FERPA - Governs information in a student's education record, restricting access and use of student information.

  • COPPA - Restricts the collection of personal information from children under 13 by companies operating websites, games, mobile applications, and digital services that are directed to children or that collect personal information from individuals known to be children.

  • CIPA - Imposes certain requirements on schools that utilize the federal E-Rate program to receive discounts for internet access and other technology services, or that receive federal grants for other technology expenses

  • SOPPA - Protects the privacy and security of student data when collected by companies operating websites, online services, or online/mobile applications primarily used for K-12 school purposes.
