If your administrator or IT department is asking about SLP Toolkit compliance with the Connecticut student data privacy laws, we've got you covered. You can find information about how to comply with the regulations below. Although we are well versed in the new statutes, we are not legal experts (we stick to speech pathology and software). So you should consult your district about how to fully comply too.

2. Data Sharing & Privacy Agreement
If your district would like a signed data sharing & privacy agreement (DSPA), you can generate and download one using this form (click here).
For school districts that require the Terms of Service (TOS) to include the language contained in the Connecticut Model TOS Agreement Addendum, you can find that located here.
Connecticut's state privacy law allows SLP Toolkit to register as compliant by digitally signing the Connecticut Student Data Privacy Pledge. You can access our signed data privacy pledge here.
Hopefully, this demystifies the Connecticut student privacy laws and you can get on with helping the students :) As always, let us know if there are any questions about this or other privacy standards by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting support.
