 “The Parent Toolkit for Student Privacy” is a 46-page resource designed to help parents protect their children’s sensitive school data. The toolkit informs parents about what kinds of data schools are gathering from children, and it offers guidance about parents’ rights under federal law, including suggestions for how parents can guard their child’s sensitive information. It also explains how parents can advocate for better privacy practices.

This resource was developed jointly by the Parent Coalition for Student Privacy and the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, and was made possible by a grant from the Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment’s Consumer Privacy Rights Fund.
