• Protecting Personally Identifiable Information (Ed Law Section 2-d)

    The Wappingers CSD is committed to improve the protection of personally identifiable information protected by state and federal laws by promoting sound information practices and policies that will strengthen data privacy and security in our District, empower parents with information, and advance efficient and effective school operations.  
    The Board of Education acknowledges the heightened concern regarding the rise in identity theft and the need for secure networks and prompt notification when security breaches occur. The Board adopts the National Institute for Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework Version 1.1 (NIST CSF) for data security and protection. The Data Privacy Officer is responsible for ensuring the district’s systems follow NIST CSF and adopt technologies, safeguards and practices which align with it. This will include an assessment of the district’s current cybersecurity state, their target future cybersecurity state, opportunities for improvement, progress toward the target state, and communication about cyber security risk.
