Upcoming Training Dates on Data Privacy & Technology Needs of Students with Disabilities

With the ever-changing nature of technology, how do we ensure the tools we use with students comply with Connecticut’s data privacy laws? Schools and families should be aware that regardless of privacy requirements, deciding what technology meets the unique needs of a student with an individualized education program (IEP) or 504 plan should lie with the planning and placement team (PPT) or 504 team, NOT with technology directors enforcing privacy laws.

A change to the state’s laws through Public Act 18-125 allows school districts to apply a narrow exception to privacy requirements for students with (IEPs) and 504 plans. This half-day information session will provide guidance to districts on this exception and how to meet reporting obligations on the software or apps used for students with IEPs and 504s.
