Student Data, Privacy & Online Acceptable Use

  • The Newton Public Schools keeps up with current technology practices to ensure student data is kept secure and students use technology appropriately for educational purposes. We expect our educational technology products to similarly adhere to legal requirements and best practices to secure student data. The Newton Public Schools maintains a searchable, online database of approved edtech tools based on curriculum relevance and adherence to student data privacy regulations.

    Below are our policy and guideline documents focusing on student acceptable use of technology and student access to technology. In addition, students receive various training from school staff on the appropriate use of NPS technology and online safety.
