November 9, 2021- iKeepSafe announced that it has awarded a FERPA privacy badge to Campus Suite. Campus Suite provides school districts with a unified school-home messaging digital platform that promotes measurable parent engagement.
iKeepSafe’s FERPA badge is the first independent assessment program for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. This certification helps educators and parents identify edtech services and tools that protect student data privacy.
“By gaining FERPA compliance, schools can rest assured they are choosing a reputable provider and implementing tools that not only safeguard the privacy of student educational records, but also function in accordance with state laws, and school policies,” said Jason Morgan, Campus Suite chief product owner and co-founder.
“Trust is key when it comes to doing what we do for our customers,” he continued. “iKeepSafe’s FERPA certification along with ADA-compliance provide schools with peace of mind when it comes to meeting these important federal regulations.”
“We congratulate Campus Suite on demonstrating their commitment to privacy by obtaining the iKeepSafe FERPA badge,” said Amber Lindsay, President and CEO of iKeepSafe. “Schools are increasingly relying on independent, third-party reviews of technology companies in order to determine the quality of their privacy and safety practices. They can now feel confident that Campus Suite meets iKeepSafe’s standard of quality in this area.”
