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.

Links to each supplemental tool’s terms of service and privacy policy, as well as additional information on MCPS’ data privacy practices, are available on the MCPS Data Privacy and Security website: https://www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/data-privacy-security/
