How Student Data Are Stored and Protected

Wayne School District works hard at storing and protecting student data.  Student data is transmitted with the latest encryption methods and stored in a secure way.  

Our district provides student data privacy training to all full-time staff.  Staff members are trained annually on how to access information responsibly.  Our district has defined which staff can and cannot have access to student data.  Even when staff have access, they are limited to only the student data they need.

Students’ and Parents’ Rights Statement

Students own their personally identifiable student data. An educational entity shall allow the following individuals to access a student’s student data that is maintained by the education entity:

  • the student’s parent;
  • the student
  • in accordance with the education entity’s internal policy and in the absence of a parent, an individual acting as a parent to the student

If a significant data breach occurs at an education entity, they shall notify the student, if the student has turned 18, or the student’s parent or legal guardian.
