iKeepSafe.org, a leading digital safety and privacy nonprofit, is awarding its California Privacy Badge to StudentTracker® for High Schools. iKeepSafe’s California Privacy Badge is the first independent assessment program specifically tailored to emerging student data privacy legislation, including the Student Online Personal Information Protection Act (SOPIPA).

“By undergoing the California Privacy assessment, National Student Clearinghouse has further demonstrated their commitment to student data privacy,” said Marsali Hancock, President and CEO of iKeepSafe. “Because our youth are learning and growing in a digital culture, schools need to ensure that the privacy practices of the tools they depend on have been carefully reviewed. They can now feel confident that StudentTracker meets iKeepSafe’s quality standard of data privacy protection.”

Products participating in the California Privacy assessment must undergo annual re-evaluation to continue displaying the iKeepSafe badge. For the evaluation, an independent privacy professional reviewed StudentTracker, its privacy policy and practices, as well as its data security practices.

In July 2015, the Clearinghouse, through its StudentTracker for High Schools service, became the first recipient of iKeepSafe’s FERPA Badge. “Just like when the National Student Clearinghouse received the very first iKeepSafe FERPA Badge in 2015 and now their California Student Privacy Badge, this recognition continues to demonstrate our commitment to protecting the privacy of K-12 students’ education records,” said Rick Torres, President and CEO of the Clearinghouse.

“Because our youth are learning and growing in a digital culture, schools need to ensure that the privacy practices of the tools they depend on have been carefully reviewed. They can now feel confident that StudentTracker meets iKeepSafe’s quality standard of data privacy protection.”
