    Privacy and Compliance

    South Bay Union School District has provided a few targeted digital tools for our TK-8th grade students. These tools were selected because they are research based and allow for creativity, critical thinking, collaboration or communication. These tools are FERPA and SOPIPA compliant to protect student data privacy. 

    We use the California Student Data Privacy Alliance and rely on the agreements vendors have made with school districts to protect our students. If there is an amended agreement, or if there is no agreement, we are less likely to select that vendor.
