BCPS approach to tools for learning and student privacy

Level 1 Tool:
Tools that are essential to curriculum and are under contract with BCPS.
BCPS assesses the level of student data privacy for every approved tool with which our students interact. For more information on BCPS’ Policy on directory information, see BCPS Policy and Rule 5230 section XI.
The following tiles display information about tools most commonly accessed by BCPS students and staff. Each information card gives the title of the tool, the grade ranges of users, a brief description, and an icon with a description of what, if any, student data is shared by using the tool. For a detailed list of the specific data that is shared with each tool, please view our vendor list.
