Student Data Privacy

Bristol Public Schools Student Data Privacy Information

Bristol Public Schools is committed to protecting the privacy of its community and utilizing technology that gives students an engaging and safe educational experience. Bristol Public Schools complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) as well as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

Bristol Public Schools collects and uses data from our students and teachers to inform instructional practice and improve the learning experience. In some cases, this data is not stored on our local servers. In all cases where data may be stored or accessible outside the district, that vendor must comply with FERPA regulations. Many of our vendors have already taken the Student Privacy Pledge.

Effective October 1, 2016, all new contracts must also comply with CT State law, CT PA16-189. This page will serve as an informational gateway for the Bristol Public Schools compliance with PA16-189.
