G Suite Privacy

The Facts About Student Privacy in Google Apps for Education and Chromebooks, published on December 2, 2015, at the Google for Education Blog
 

What is G Suite (formerly Google Apps for Education - GAFE)?

G Suite is a suite of free Google cloud based services that allow teachers and students to collaborate on school projects in a secured environment that is completely separate from public Google offerings and is free from advertising and third party data mining. Examples of Google services that Washington Unified School District has enabled include Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Email, and Google Classroom. Some teachers will be distributing and collecting assignments through G Suite and the Google Classroom service. Students will be learning digital citizenship skills and cyber safety and information security/privacy through use of G Suite and potentially Google Email in certain grades. To enable G Suite, Washington Unified creates district managed G Suite accounts for each student. G Suite and online account management are included in a letter sent home from each school site at the beginning of the school year (English/Spanish/Russian). Parents are able to opt out of having their students enrolled and using G Suite by contacting our your school site leadership, but this may significantly impact their ability to participate in class learning activities, digital citizenship curriculum, on-line class discussions, and so forth. To help inform parents of the steps that the district and Google has taken to ensure the student's experiences using G Suite remains safe and that their data remains protected and private, we have prepared the following information about Washington Unified's deployment of G Suite and Google's own student data privacy polices.

Data Privacy

Data privacy and information security is of great importance to Washington Unified School District and we share your concern that student data is handled appropriately and not shared with outside sources without permission and that all student data remains under our control. We have designed our implementation of cloud based data storage to be as similar as possible to the data access and security we currently have with district hosted files and student files/data on district servers. In addition to G Suite, we make use of services from Backupify (www.backupify.com) and Cloudlock (www.cloudlock.com) to ensure that we have an independent archive of all G Suite data (information stored in Google Drive and Google Email accounts) and the ability to search and monitor the contents of student data stores that is separate from Google. This allows us to have a historical record of any data stored within Google accounts, just as we currently do with district hosted file servers that currently hold student files. We have also employed the services of AmplifiedIT (www.amplifiedit.com), the leading K-12 G Suite consultancy to assist us in configuring our G Suite implementation to ensure that there is no leakage of data or gaps in misconfigurations of the Google Admin console that would lead to a potential security breach or loss of privacy or data.
