Privacy Policy

The Hamden Public Schools district has always taken very seriously the issue of student data privacy. A new Connecticut law that came into full effect on July 1, 2018 has very strict and specific requirements that Connecticut school districts must assure are in place for any online tool, application or other program that collects student data in any way. It requires districts enter into contracts with service providers to assure compliance with the law (CT 16-189).

Information related to privacy for online tools in use in our district is posted below. In many cases, the providers have signed the CT Privacy Pledge with the State of Connecticut Commission for Educational Technology, agreeing to oblige by the requirements of the law, and those are linked in the table in lieu of a privacy contract between the provider and Hamden Public Schools.
