Effective July 1, 2021, school districts will be required by the Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA) to provide additional guarantees that student data is protected when collected by educational technology companies, and that data is used for beneficial purposes only (105 ILCS 85).
Students, teachers and administrators alike make daily use of digital and online resources for collaboration, communication, consumption and creation of instructional materials and practices. These services are available through agreements between the resources and Tri-County Special Education Cooperative (TCSE).
TCSE staff will monitor student use of these resources when students are at school. Parents are responsible for monitoring their child’s use of these tools when at home. Students are responsible for their own behavior at all times. Student safety is our highest priority.
A summary of other privacy acts are below and a list of Software and Privacy Agreements.
