“We pride ourselves on being an education technology company that puts online safety and privacy first,” said Patrick Marcotte, president of Learning A-Z. “When students engage with a Learning A-Z product, district and school leaders and teachers can be assured they are working in a safe digital environment that meets the highest standards for privacy and security.”
iKeepSafe, which is driven to improve transparency around student data privacy, certifies that technology used by children in educational settings meets the complicated and demanding standards of compliance required by federal and state laws. iKeepSafe’s FERPA Certification ensures schools that they can rely on products to adequately safeguard the privacy of student data.
