Student Data Transparency and Security Act
The Aurora Public School District holds data privacy and security in high regard and takes action to ensure that our students’ data is handled securely in compliance with the Colorado Student Data Transparency and Security Act (HB 16-1423) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
APS also provides this data inventory and dictionary of data elements published by the state Board of Education. The district uses data in order to meet its mission to provide academic excellence by design, and shares necessary personally identifiable information with carefully vetted third party service providers using the most secure data transfer methods in accordance with current industry best practices.
