Student Data Privacy

New Fairfield Schools are committed to ensuring the privacy of our student information data and for providing technology services that provide educational opportunities in a safe environment. NFPS complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) as well as Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule (COPPA) legislation. 

With the passage of CT PA-189 - An Act Concerning StudentData Privacy – NFPS is now publishing a list of approved technology resources used by teachers and students within the district. All of the technology resources listed below have gone through a vetting and scoring system to ensure their Terms of Service and Privacy Policy comply with PA-189. If the district has signed an additional contract or addendum to the Terms of Service to ensure compliance, it will be available for viewing by clicking the PDF button to the right. This list is continuously evolving as we add new resources.

Teachers who wish to have educational technology added to the list should complete the Approval for Use of Technology form for any items not currently listed on the list below.

The State of Connecticut has created a web page that contains additional information about Student Data Privacy that can be accessed at http://StudentPrivacy.CT.gov
