With the rapid growth and accessibility of technology and resources – teachers, students, and parents have access to an ever increasing wealth of tools to support teaching and learning. Accompanied with this extraordinary access comes great potential to inadvertently leak student data. As a district on the cutting edge of innovative uses of technology in education, CFISD is committed to ensuring the protection of our students' privacy, as well as promoting online student safety, as we continue to transform education – providing world-class quality K-12 systems.
Student safety – in both physical and virtual environments – is of great importance at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD. To ensure that students, their personally identifiable information, and intellectual property are ethically and legally protected, the District has privacy and data policies in place. Adherence to these policies by vendors and staff greatly increases our ability to protect our students from physical and virtual harm such as identity theft, harassment, and unauthorized data collection.
