Data Privacy Information

Wolcott Public Schools are committed to providing the highest quality education for our students while ensuring the safety and well-being of their rights and privacy. 

The State of Connecticut passed a law regarding student data that went into effect on October 1, 2016. Public Act Number 16-189 requires each school district to establish a Data Privacy Contract with all vendors and consultants that work in our schools and have access to student data. The act also requires these contracts from all external technology resources that have access to and maintain student data. Student data, as defined by this law, includes: student information, student records, and student generated content.

Below is a list of service providers that are in contract with Wolcott Public Schools that may have access to student data following the compliance measures outline in Connecticut Public Act 16-189.  As the district enters into new contacts, that information will be updated regularly.

If you have any questions regarding Wolcott’s Privacy Policies, please contact Shawn Simpson, Assistant Superintendent at 203-879-8183.
