Student Data Privacy

  • Mounds View Public Schools provides access to free and subscription-based digital resources for beneficial services, such as providing high quality instructional resources and increasing efficiency in school operations. 

    Depending upon the particular educational technology being used, our District may need to collect different types of student data, which is then shared with educational technology vendors through their online sites, services, and/or applications. Under Minnesota’s Student Data Privacy Act, educational technology vendors are prohibited from selling or renting a student's information or from engaging in targeted advertising using a student's information. Such vendors may only disclose student data for K-12 school purposes and other limited purposes permitted under the law. This act also requires districts to provide timely notice of the tool used, data collected, and contact information.

    Mounds View Public Schools has partnered with LearnPlatform to inform staff, students and families about digital resources that have been evaluated by the District Instructional Leadership Team. To see the full library of evaluated resources, please click here or on the Learn Platform link on the left. If you have any questions or concerns about any digital resources used by your child, please contact your child’s teacher.

    Mounds View Public Schools is committed to protecting the privacy of each student. We are a member of the Student Data Privacy Consortium and have earned the 1EdTech Trusted Apps badge for evaluating digital resources.
