• On October 1, 2016 PA 16-189 “An Act Concerning Student Data Privacy” went into effect. New Canaan is in the process of working with all contractors and whose products are used by the district and fall under the privacy legislation to ensure they are compliant with the law.

    Below is  a list of all digital resources used by New Canaan Public Schools that adheres to student data privacy regulations.  Resources are divided into three categories:  Apps, Subscriptions, and Contractors.  Here is a brief description of each category:

    • Apps  is a piece of software that is downloaded form the internet and typically run on mobile devices.  New Canaan Public Schools purchases these apps for use on district devices (i.e. iPads, or Chromebooks).
    • Subscriptions are digital resources that are purchased on an annual basis to support our instructional mission.  These typically involve some form of cloud-based computing.  
    • Contractors are operators or consultants with access to any type of student data (records, information or content).

    You may scroll through this list to view the resources used by the district.  This list is updated daily, and regular e-mail notifications are sent out to families to ensure community members have an opportunity to review updates or changes.
