At Sci High, we take the protection of student information very seriously. Data from our Student Information System (PowerSchool) is sent to certain classroom applications via managed connections through secure File Transfer Protocol and is encrypted in transit. The educational application sites used in Sci High classrooms have valid SSL certificates. These tools access only what is required for classroom use. The personally identifiable information used by the majority of these applications is limited to only full name.
All of our vendors adhere to the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and most are voluntary signatories of the Student Privacy Pledge. Under FERPA, we provide parents and guardians with an opportunity to inspect and review the education records of their children which are already in existence and maintained. Parents also have the right to request that inaccurate or misleading information in their child's education records be amended.
LA Act 837 permits LEAs (Local Education Agencies) such as Sci High to share student information with the education services with which they are contracted. In accordance with LA Act 677, parents and students can click on the icons on this page to view the Privacy Policies of each of the ed tech services used at Sci High.
