Student Data Privacy

Seymour Public Schools is committed to protecting the privacy of its community and utilizing technology that gives students an engaging and safe educational experience. Seymour Public Schools complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). For more details on FERPA, please visit the U.S. Department of Education's FERPA webpage.

Seymour Public Schools collects and uses data from our students and teachers to inform instructional practice and improve the learning experience. In some cases, this data is not stored on our local servers. In all cases where data may be stored or accessible outside the district, that vendor must comply with FERPA regulations. Many of our vendors have already taken the Student Privacy Pledge.

Effective October 1, 2016, all new contracts must also comply with CT State law, CT PA16-189. This page will serve as an informational gateway for the Seymour Public Schools compliance with PA16-189.


** COVID-19 Update **  Due to COVID 19 Governor Lamont has issued an executive order which allows districts utilize software as long as it is listed on the CT ED TECH software hub and has a "compliance pledged" badge.  You will need to create an account to search the hub but it is strongly recommended and can be accessed by clicking here.
