What is SOPPA?

From the Illinois Student Online Personal Protection Act:
Sec. 3. Legislative intent. Schools today are increasingly using a wide range of beneficial online services and other technologies to help students learn, but concerns have been raised about whether sufficient safeguards exist to protect the privacy and security of data about students when it is collected by educational technology companies. This Act is intended to ensure that student data will be protected when it is collected by educational technology companies and that the data may be used for beneficial purposes such as providing personalized learning and innovative educational technologies. (Source: P.A. 100-315, eff. 8-24-17).

Recent Revisions to SOPPA go into effect on July 1, 2021.

Operators who will access covered information under SOPPA must submit the completed SOPPA Addendum to contracts@wps60.org.
