Brief Session Description: When evaluating software for use in your district, the time required to review privacy and security concerns can be daunting. In this session, you will learn specific skills, questions, and strategies to highlight potential areas of concern in time-efficient ways. While a triage is never a substitute for a complete evaluation, the techniques covered in this session help identify many common issues.

An additional focus of this session includes strategies for empowering staff with the knowledge and skills to perform low level reviews or evaluations of software they are interested in using. While staffing and expertise will vary from school to school, creating tools to support shared awareness and responsibility can create community norms and shared understanding of privacy and security.
