New Hartford Public Schools is committed to protecting student data in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and Connecticut Student Data Privacy Act (CT PA 16-189).
Why do we collect student data?
New Hartford Public Schools collects and uses data from our students and teachers to inform instructional practice and improve the learning experience. We believe it is essential for our students to efficiently and effectively access digital tools that empower them in all phases of the learning process, including research, critical thinking, creativity, problem solving, content creation, communication, and collaboration.
Below are additional resources for parents regarding Student Data Privacy:
