The school district leader creates an artifact (e.g., a web page) to both communicate district student data privacy policies to a particular audience and anticipates potential challenges.
Communicating with Parents, Teachers, and Other Stakeholders About Student Data Privacy is the third micro-credential in the Student Data Privacy stack:
School districts can have the most thoughtful and substantive policies around student data privacy, but they will still face considerable challenges if they are unable to effectively communicate these policies to parents, teachers, and other stakeholders in a clear and compelling manner. Districts can create websites, host informational sessions, and send out newsletters—these are just a small sampling of strategies that districts have employed in order to raise awareness around the protection of student data and the roles that each stakeholder group can play in this process.
Following are the items you must submit to earn this micro-credential and the criteria by which they will be evaluated. To earn the micro-credential, you must receive a “Yes” on Parts 1, 2, and 3. Through any of a variety of methods (written, scanned, audio, video, and/or multimedia), you must demonstrate an understanding of student data privacy and consider the impact of privacy policies on key stakeholders.
Describe the importance of clearly communicating your district’s student data privacy policies to parents, teachers, and other key stakeholders. In your response, be sure to note at least two potential consequences of not doing so. (200-word limit)
To earn this micro-credential, create an artifact (e.g., a flyer, a web page mock-up, etc.) that clearly communicates one or more district student data privacy policies to parents, teachers, or other key stakeholders.
Consider the artifact that you created in Part 2. Identify two or more potential concerns that your audience might have with the specific policy that you conveyed. Describe how you might specifically address these concerns with this audience. (200-word limit)
