Explanation for Moratorium on Application and Program Purchases
The SRUSD Educational Technology Department is currently placing a moratorium on new educational application purchases to ensure that any application purchased complies with FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act)  and  the California Student Data Privacy Protection Act (CSDPPA). This involves developing an application request process, educating staff and students in regard to online privacy, conducting a comprehensive assessment of each application requested, evaluating the vendor's data privacy and security practices, and negotiating a data privacy agreement with the vendor. By taking these [steps, SRUSD can ensure that student data is adequately protected and that we are in compliance with all relevant privacy laws and regulations.
