What is SOPPA?

The Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA) is a privacy law for schools going into effect July 1st, 2021.  This law is intended to help protect the privacy and security of student data.  All educational technology companies that collect student personally identifiable information (PII) will provide guarantees that the data is protected and only used for beneficial purposes.  These guarantees are commonly refered to as Data Privacy Agreements (DPAs).

East Peoria District 86 has adopted the Illinois National Data Privacy agreement for use with EdTech companies.  This document includes the specifics of what the company's purpose is and what data they collect.  For a full listing of our district's agreements, please view the database here:  https://sdpc.a4l.org/district_listing.php?districtID=6484
