Student Data Privacy
Cooperative Educational Services believes it is vital for all students in the C.E.S. school programs to be able to efficiently and effectively use digital tools that empower them in all phases of the learning process, including research, problem-solving, content-creation, communication, and collaboration. We also believe that we must be committed at all times to protecting students' privacy and providing them with a powerful and safe educational experience. To that end, C.E.S. follows the legal requirements to ensure the safety and security of all students and staff while using any technology resource or outside contractor.
We review privacy policies and terms of service regularly to ensure that each resource conforms with legal requirements and local guidelines.
