School Reopenings & Student Privacy
Coronavirus is changing the way schools operate, and there is a significant change in the learning environment. If there are recordings of students participating, communicating, or even giving demonstrations, then the information faces FERPA policies and heavy redaction from school administrators or other resources.
COVID19 FERPA Community and Student Privacy
Closing schools is just one step to complying with government safety instructions to prevent the spread of this disease. Social distancing, hand washing, sterilizing, and staying in quarantined areas may be painful, but maybe the only activities that can keep families and students safe.
FERPA and Student Surveillance Systems
Having a quality video redaction system that many school administrators, teachers, IT personnel and more can be trained to use quickly and easily takes away the pressure from the administration regarding complying with FERPA, maintaining student’s private information, and also keeping their budgets for higher educational priorities.
Protecting Student Identity on School Bus Video Systems
When schools are faced with FOIA, legal, or other requests regarding students in school bus video, many times there is a defined amount of time for turnaround of the redacted video. Being able to meet FERPA guidelines, and being able to handle the job easily are extremely important. Using a quality video redaction system also means there is less room for human error, when even a single frame can be left out to affect the release of PII.
