Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) is committed to the safety and security of our students,
their families, and our staff while leveraging technology. Paramount to this commitment is the
responsible use and handling of personally identifiable information and other sensitive data. As part
of this commitment, MCPS recently has launched a Data Privacy and Security web page to provide
schools with guidance on the responsible use of online digital tools (ODTs) to safeguard sensitive
student information: https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/data-privacy-security/
MCPS teachers may utilize a variety of supplemental online digital tools to reinforce the district’s
instructional program. Click here to find a list of supplemental tools that may be used by teachers.
These tools have been evaluated to be safe for student use and are consistent with federal laws on
student data privacy.
