Digital Resource List
 
On July 1, 2018, PA 16-189 “An Act Concerning Student Data Privacy” went into effect. C.E.S. is in the process of working with all contractors whose products are used by the district and fall under the privacy legislation to ensure they are compliant with the law.
The C.E.S. Technology Privacy Approval Status List includes all resources reviewed by C.E.S. and their status. Resources that adhere to student data privacy regulations are marked "Approved." Here is a description of each and their subcomponents:
  • Digital Resources are apps, websites, software or any web-based subscriptions.
    • Apps are software downloaded from the internet that typically run on mobile devices.  New Canaan Public Schools purchases these apps for use on district devices (i.e. iPads, or Chromebooks).
    • Websites, in this case, refers to a collection of related web pages accessible through a browser that require student login. 
    • Subscriptions are digital resources that are purchased on an annual basis to support our instructional mission. These typically involve some form of cloud-based computing.  
  • Contractors are operators or consultants with access to any type of student data (records, information or content).
You may scroll through this list to view the resources that have been reviewed by the agency.  This list is updated regularly, and e-mail notifications are sent out to families to ensure community members have an opportunity to review updates or changes.
