School Practitioner Student Data & Privacy Bootcamp

AASA, in coordination with our friends at Future of Privacy Forum, are pleased to offer a free, one-day bootcamp on all aspects of student data and privacy. While these discussions have been dominating at the state and local government level, they are now bubbling up at the federal level, and this bootcamp is a one-stop shop for a quick crash course and learning about what good federal student data and privacy policy may look like, what we can learn from the work and experience of state policy, and more.

The bootcamp will be held on Monday July 9 (right before the AASA legislative advocacy conference) in Washington DC. A conference agenda is below. Interested? Email Noelle Ellerson Ng (nellerson@aasa.org).
