Online Applications & Student Privacy

21st-century learning tools are key parts of Alameda Unified’s educational program. They provide opportunities for AUSD students to think critically, communicate, collaborate, create content, and otherwise dive deeper into materials and activities outlined in the Common Core State Standards. Some of these apps, websites, and electronic database applications store private and confidential student information. AUSD has a legal responsibility to protect student data and privacy per the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
