Welcome to Protect.
Protect is the SPS initiative focused on protecting student and staff data, as well as providing information security resources to our community.
We will provide regular updates about efforts at SPS to protect critical and confidential information, as well as demonstrate examples of best practices you can adopt to protect your personal information at home.
Currently, as part of Protect, Springfield Public Schools aligns curriculum with strong Digital Citizenship, utilizes robust Digital Tools, adheres to Information Security protocols established by industry standards, and steadfastly secures Student Data.
How will we achieve this, and how do we measure our progress?
One of the major approaches that SPS is taking to ensure the privacy of our student's information is to work towards earning a nationally recognized seal of data security standards. We are striving to earn the Trusted Learning Environment (TLE) seal, which is a program created by the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) by 28 member school districts.
SPS is using this program to guide our approach to Protect, and to show our commitment to keep our student's data private and secure.
