Data Sharing Toolkit for Communities: Protecting Student Privacy

Created by the US Department of Education, the purpose of this toolkit is to help civic and community leaders understand the importance of data collection and sharing, using best practices to protect student privacy, and managing shared data using integrated systems. By simplifying the complex concepts of FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) this toolkit is essential for learning the necessary parameters needed when sharing personally identifiable information (PII) from education records.
