Behold the Texas Data Privacy Agreement. Available online here: https://secure2.cpsd.us/txspa/
Developed by the Student Data Privacy Consortium, this document aims to be the One Data Privacy Agreement to Rule Them All, meeting the day-to-day “tactical” privacy issues our schools face as they seek to incorporate the interwebs into their respective brick and mortar educational environments. By creating a common agreement, they also hope to establish common expectations among vendors and avoid the need to renegotiate terms when schools seek to implement online applications. Just like any form contract, however, it is worth getting some assistance from your legal counsel to ensure it meets the needs of your particular project, and to make sure it is accurately and appropriately tailored in each instance.
DAWG BONE: THIS IS A PROMISING DEVELOPMENT IN STUDENT DATA PRIVACY, BUT PROCEED WITH CAUTION. #ConsortiumGoals.
