Student Data Privacy

Safeguarding Student Data in Today’s Connected Learning Environments

As a student data privacy management tool, CatchOn is committed to protecting student data and empowering districts with the information required to foster deeper conversations regarding data privacy compliance. We do so through the delivery of:

New! Third-Party Badging and Security Reviews

CatchOn has partnered with IMS Global Learning Consortium and the Student Data Privacy Consortium to support privacy agreement management and provide districts advanced insight into application security and privacy measures.

IMS Global Learning Consortium

The IMS TrustEd Apps program for student data privacy is a collaboratively developed process to proactively guide and support institutions and EdTech suppliers in secure data use, collection, and sharing. Through TrustEd Apps, IMS independently vets the policies of hundreds of edtech companies annually to determine their level of support for student data privacy.

As an IMS TrustEd Apps Preferred Partner, CatchOn brings the IMS data privacy rubric results and regulatory compliance information directly to district administrators and educators through its platform.

CatchOn’s new privacy badging identification feature enables users to quickly see if an application currently holds an IMS TrustED Apps review including compliance with FERPA, COPPA, and GDPR. This new privacy feature also allows IMS Global member districts to access its IMS data privacy rubric results and regulatory compliance information.

Student Data Privacy Consortium

The Student Data Privacy Consortium is a partnership of schools, districts, regional, territories and state agencies, policy makers, trade organizations and marketplace providers that collaborate to address solutions to growing data privacy concerns.

CatchOn’s Student Data Privacy Consortium privacy badges enable users to quickly see if a vendor has signed the National Data Privacy Agreement. Additionally, K-12 leaders can see what active available privacy agreements an app has by state.

Visibility Tool

CatchOn enables district leaders to receive comprehensive application usage data outside of what single sign on solutions, filtering tools, and browser extensions report on. With more in-depth visibility into what their students are accessing, administrators can quickly diagnose applications that may pose a threat to their students’ data or safety. 

Approved and Unapproved Applications

CatchOn gives users the ability to mark and categorize their applications as approved or not approved by the district. Users can even sort, download, and export a list of approved or unapproved applications to share with district personnel, stakeholders, and parents. CatchOn’s Application Profiles give districts access to review the application privacy policies and terms of service. These applications will now be marked with 3rd party application.

CatchOn Stands Behind Student Data Privacy Efforts​

CatchOn proudly supports and has signed the Student Data Privacy Pledge. We are also a member of the Student Data Privacy Consortium and support the National Data Privacy Agreement (NDPA).
