When it comes to technology, you’re at a risk if your school is among the cutting edge in technology but your culture prohibits it. Technology is almost essential in organizing and maintaining certain file types. And, it’s no secret children today are savvier than most school administrators when it comes to the latest technology.
In this session, we’ll discuss having, storing, and accessing different types of data. Your school most likely maintains parent information such as social security numbers and contact numbers; student health records and transcripts; donor information; employee files consisting of health, financial, and evaluation records; and your school’s financial information. The Internet, your school’s intranet, friending, tweeting, texting, and cyber-bullying also bring a new level of risk.
One way to help reduce your school’s risk is to have an Acceptable Use Policy for both your employee handbook and your student handbook.
You'll cover these topics and more:
- Safeguarding data
- Reducing risk with technology
- Rules of Engagement and the consequences for not following these
- Rights and duties to monitor staff and students after school hours
- Developing an effective Acceptable Use Policy
This Webinar is intended for the school’s Risk Manager and/or anyone responsible for managing technology at the school.
Total run time is 60 minutes. The presentation will run approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes designated for Q&A.
