Please note that policies may be revised by the Board of Education during the school year. When such changes occur, administration will follow relevant public notice requirements.

STUDENT DATA PRIVACY
The Old Saybrook School District is committed to protecting the privacy of our student’s information data as well as implementing educational technology that provides for a safe learning environment. The District complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) as well as the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
On October 1, 2016, Connecticut’s Public Act 16 – 189, “An Act Concerning Student Data Privacy” went into effect. The District is working diligently with all vendors and publishers of products that fall under the scope of this new law to ensure their compliance.
