Student Data Privacy

​​​​​CCSD Statement​​

CCSD values accountability and transparency and takes seriously its obligation to protect the privacy of data collected, used, shared and stored. The following page contains the state and federal policies CCSD ​adheres to, data privacy and security procedures, as well as guidance and resources for various stakeholders. CCSD has taken action to ensure that all student data is handled securely and in compliance with the Colorado Student Transparency and Security Act​
The Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education has adopted policies relating to student data privacy and safety, JRCA, JRCB​, and JRCB-R. The District is committed to providing information and resources to students, parents, and staff to assist in safe, responsible online participation through its Internet & Social Media Safety​ webpage.​

Use and Sharing of Data
The district uses data to support a variety of processes throughout the district including supporting student learning, evaluating teachers, improving instructional and operational practices, and complying with various state and federal requirements. 

In addition to the district's use of data, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) currently collects the following information about students in our district. 

The Colorado Student Transparency and Security Act​ to disclose lists of on-demand service providers and contract service providers.

According to the State Act, Districts must require contract service providers to sign a Data Protection Addendum (DPA) to prohibit student data mining or targeting marketing while requiring industry standards for encryption and security. As new district-wide contracts are signed and old contracts are renewed, the DPA is put into place.​

On-Demand Service Providers are the agreements that happen before installing an app or extension in your browser or before installing a software program, commonly known as "click-through" agreements. The State Act does not currently require a signed Data Protection Addendum (DPA) for "click-through" contracts. This list is a good faith effort to stay current with online instructional tools and is updated twice a year.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
