Implementing comprehensive email security protocols like SPF, DKIM, and DMARC isn’t just a technical necessity—it’s a fundamental step in protecting our schools from cyber threats.

I think that it’s critical that edtech executives, including me, are proactive in leading cybersecurity strategy and key initiatives for all of our schools, from the largest to the smallest, regardless of IT resources. All of our students deserve our protection.

It’s important to bring the data to a principal and share how well the school has integrated technology. On the other hand, it’s also important to ask principals what support they need to integrate more technology into classrooms. They might be missing out on a great opportunity when we have data that shows other schools are using it every day.”

FAQ

What is FERPA, and how does Clever comply with it?

FERPA is a federal law that governs the privacy of student education records. Clever’s Privacy Policy and our services are designed to meet our responsibilities under FERPA to protect personal information from students’ educational records.

We collect, receive and use student personal information as a “School Official” that performs an outsourced institutional function, subject to the direction and control of the school. We agree to work with each school to jointly ensure compliance with the FERPA regulations to protect the confidentiality of educational records, provide parents and eligible students the opportunity to access and review such records and limit further disclosure of personal information only as necessary to support the school’s educational purposes.

What is COPPA, and how does Clever comply with it?

COPPA is a federal law that governs the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13. Clever complies with COPPA. We do not knowingly collect personal information from a child under 13 unless and until a school has authorized us to collect such information through the provision of services on the school’s behalf.

Consistent with COPPA, we rely on the school to provide appropriate consent and authorization for a student under 13 to use our services and for Clever to collect personal information from each student. We use and process Student Data for the purpose of providing educational services to the school and do not collect or retain Student Data for longer than is necessary to provide the services. We provide the school the opportunity to review and delete the personal information collected from their students, and we work with schools to provide parents with the same level of access upon request.
