Student Data Privacy
Provo City School District recognizes its moral and legal responsibility to protect student privacy and ensure data security of both students and staff. Utah’s Student Data Protection Act (SDPA), UTAH CODE ANN. § 53A-1-1401 to 14011 (2017) requires that Provo City School District adopt a Data Governance Plan that fully addresses data privacy and protection. Data governance is an organizational approach to data collection and information management that is formalized as a set of policies and procedures that encompass the full life cycle of data; from acquisition, to use, and finally, to disposal of collected data.
District Data Governance Plan
The PCSD Data Governance Plan applies to all district employees, temporary employees, volunteers, and contractors of Provo City School District.
