The Freedom of Information Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) sets out the privacy rights of individuals as they relate to the public sector. The school district is required to comply with this legislation and must protect the personal information in its custody and/or control from unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, and disposal.
The school district's privacy management program includes procedures, documents, forms, and information to protect the personal information the school district collects. The program also includes regular education and training for employees and an ongoing review of the program to ensure it complies with FIPPA and Board direction. This includes protecting information from unauthorized disclosure or privacy breach and reporting and investigating a privacy breach.
