The CoSN Trusted Learning Environment (TLE) Seal program is the nation’s only privacy framework designed specifically for school systems. Join Rod as he takes you on his CoSN TLE journey, and walk away with impactful knowledge about it can help you foster trust in the privacy and security of your learning environment.

Data privacy and information security are critically important today, especially in our data-rich school district environments. We must protect the digital identities of our students. Privacy is never done; It’s a discipline of ongoing improvement. Anyone who touches student data plays a key role.

The five practice areas within the TLE speak directly to the essential elements a school district must have to provide information security and data privacy effectively. Spoiler alert: it’s not all technical! District and building-level leadership have significant responsibilities.

Anything that sparks conversation and promotes understanding is a valuable learning experience. Going through the TLE process does just that.

Join us to learn more about how this outstanding program helps K12 schools and districts build robust and effective privacy programs amidst a culture of trust and transparency.
