Richmond County School System Protects Student Data
Student data is used for accessing district software. RCSS seeks to meet federal law requirements to protect student’s data privacy.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects personally identifiable information (PII) from students’ education records from unauthorized disclosure.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is a federal law that places parents in control over what information is collected from their young children online. COPPA imposes rules for websites and online resources to protect children under age 13 while accounting for the dynamic nature of the Internet.
Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) is a federal law that requires libraries and school districts to put safety measures in place for student protection while they use the internet. CIPA requires monitoring of online activity as well as educating minors about appropriate online behavior, including cyber-bullying awareness and response.
Software Available to RCSS Students
Students and staff in RCSS access software through Classlink Launchpad, a single user sign-on platform that allows access to district software without having to sign into each platform. Below is a compiled list of district software used by schools. Note: Schools may choose to purchase and use additional software which also has gone through the approval process but may not be on this list.
