2022 THE Journal IT Leadership Summit

The last couple years have caused a shift in priorities for IT organizations in K–12. Data security, student data privacy, and equity gaps have all come to the forefront as major issues impacting schools across the country. The drastic increase in the cost of living that we’re seeing now is not likely to help the situation but only to compound the problems of crime and inequity. For the 2022 IT Leadership Summit, we spotlight strategies that IT leaders can use to help deliver technology-driven solutions to the education communities they serve.

Effective Management of Information Security and Data Privacy in K–12

Special guest Rod Russeau is somewhat of an expert in the changing data privacy regulatory environment: His state and a handful of others have new laws requiring district IT leaders to significantly step up oversight of student data protections, by district systems and by ed tech providers. With concerns about student data privacy being discussed in legislatures across the nation and at the federal level, could the new role of “student data privacy policing” now assigned to K-12 IT leadership in a handful of states be a harbinger of what’s to come nationally? What should IT leaders be mindful of now, and what should they be prepared for in the near future as policymakers consider more regulations to protect student data privacy?
