Data Privacy Agreements


Data Privacy and Cybersecurity

Welcome!  We hope you will find resources here to better understand how Holliston Public Schools is protecting student and staff data and highlight our plans to minimize cyberthreats.

Due to the rapid expansion of digital learning resources, we partnered with the Massachusetts Data Privacy Alliance to secure student data privacy agreements to hold our vendors accountable and control what data may be shared .   Every day there are new resources available that our staff may want to use to support our students and the curriculum.  We are creating workflows to streamline the approval process so that staff can use them to support the curriculum at that time timely while ensuring these tools meet our privacy requirements.

We  also plan to expand our efforts to protect all of our students, staff, and data from cyberthreats.   Design improvements in our infrastructure, and robust cybersecurity training for staff that handle sensitive student and financial data, highlight some of the initiatives that have been implemented to prevent and minimize the impact of cyberattacks.

In addition, we are grateful for the efforts of our newly formed Cybersecurity Club at Holliston High School who have offered to create a series of cybersecurity and privacy tips for students, staff, and the Holliston community.

All the best,
