Required Schoology Course on Student Data Privacy

On December 12, 2017, the BVSD Board of Education adopted a Student Data Privacy Policy, as required by the state. This policy includes some new training requirements for anyone who works with student Personally Identifiable Information (PII), including teachers and many district-level employees.

All staff members who work with student PII will be required to complete a 30-60 minute online course that is available in Schoology by December 21, 2018. To meet the board policy requirement, you must complete all modules, including discussion pages and quizzes. Your principal or supervisor will be working with you to determine the best time and manner to do this.

Teachers and staff will have access to the course beginning on August 8th. To access this course:
  • Go to bvsd.schoology.com
  • Sign into the BVSD Single Sign On Portal with your BVSD credentials
  • You will be redirected to your Schoology homepage
  • School based staff will click Courses in the top menu bar, and select the Data Privacy for Teacher course from the dropdown menu.
  • District (centrally based) staff will be given a Schoology access code from their administrator (coming soon)

Thank you for doing your part in staying compliant with the law and considering your responsibility with this important issue of keeping student data private!
