Student Data Privacy
Valley View School District is committed to ensuring our students are safe - physically, emotionally and digitally. This Student Digital Safety webpage provides families with important information, in compliance with the Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA), effective July 1, 2021. There are several important data privacy laws that pertain to VVSD students.

Guarantees that student data is protected when collected by educational technology companies, and that data is used for beneficial purposes only. For more details, refer to the VVSD - SOPPA - Parent / Guardian and Student Rights Information.
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Governs information in a student’s education record, restricting access and use of student information.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

Children’s Internet Protection Act (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.
Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC)
VVSD's Technology Department has joined the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC) to collaborate with other schools, districts, state agencies and policy makers to address our needs regarding growing data privacy concerns. This consortium will provide our district with the information and resources needed to continue our goal of ensuring student data privacy going forward.
