Get Involved: Companies

Edtech software companies are invited to use our privacy evaluation criteria and results as a means to update and improve their products.

We're in the middle of a coordinated and long-term effort to ensure that student information is protected with strong privacy practices. We've built strong partnerships with school districts, software developers, and industry leaders to make this work possible. District participation helps prioritize the most relevant requirements for student privacy safeguards, and edtech companies can use our criteria to clarify and improve privacy practices, policies, and products to support digital well-being.

It's not uncommon for a company's privacy policy to drift from the company's original intent. Privacy evaluation resources are available to help edtech software developers and companies create products that can be used responsibly and effectively while protecting student privacy. Privacy evaluations are based on full evaluation questions from the Fair Information Practice Principles, which  form the basis for national and international privacy statutes, regulations, guidelines, and best practices. The privacy evaluations will always remain independent and free of charge. Priorities for app evaluations are determined by our district partners, with additional consideration given to the relative popularity and impact of the app on kids.
