The Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS) is committed to protecting privacy and developing technology that gives students the most powerful and safe educational experience. The District complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which has a goal of protecting a student’s educational records. Although FERPA regulations apply only to students, CTECS is equally committed to protecting the privacy of all data.
Operating Schools – We collect data such as addresses, phone numbers, gender, and age, as well as information to ensure student safety and accurate reporting to help run our operations efficiently.
Measuring Progress of our Students and Clients – We collect data such as attendance, grades, and participation in school activities to enable students to success
Improving the Education Program – We collect results and content from local, state, and national assessments to provide teachers, administrators, parents, state, and federal agencies important information about student, program, and school performance.
Striving to Meet the Needs of Students – We collect surveys and other feedback to improve teaching and learning.
