The Information Sharing Agreement (ISA) procedure documents the process for entering into an agreement between the school district and another public body, person or groups of persons, a prescribed entity or organization when personal information is shared or disclosed. The agreement sets out the conditions on the collection, use or disclosure of personal information by the parties to the agreement. Agreements document information sharing conditions, compliance with FIPPA legislation, and outlines responsibilities respecting handling and security of personal information.
An information sharing agreement does not provide authority to share personal information. Agreements document the conditions for information sharing as authorized by FIPPA or other applicable law. See the Personal Information Directory for a summary of Information Sharing Agreements.
