CCS Awarded National Distinction for Student Data Privacy Practices

Carmel Clay Schools is pleased to announce that the district has been honored with the prestigious Trusted Learning Environment (TLE) Seal from the Consortium for School Networking (COSN) for its outstanding commitment to safeguarding student data privacy.

The COSN TLE Seal is a nationally recognized symbol of a school district's dedication to maintaining a secure and trusted learning environment for its students. The CoSN TLE Seal Program requires school systems to implement high standards for protecting student data privacy across five core practice areas: Leadership, Business, Data Security, Professional Development, and the Classroom. This accolade is a testament to Carmel Clay Schools' unwavering dedication to upholding the highest standards of data protection and ensuring student information remains confidential and secure. Carmel Clay Schools joins a select group of less than 30 other districts nationwide that have earned this distinction. 

"We are honored to receive the Trusted Learning Environment Seal in recognition of our commitment to student data privacy, an essential component of our digital safety work with our students, staff and community. Digital safety is key to both our strategic plan and our mission to provide opportunities for all students to realize their potential in an ever-changing world,” noted Dr. Michael Beresford, Superintendent of Carmel Clay Schools.

Carmel Clay Schools has demonstrated a comprehensive approach to student data privacy and has taken measurable steps to implement, maintain, and improve organization-wide student data privacy practices. All TLE Seal recipients are required to demonstrate that improvement through a reapplication process every two years.

“Carmel Clay Schools has demonstrated its strong commitment to protecting student data privacy. We are so pleased to welcome them to the community of CoSN Trusted Learning Environment Seal recipients and commend their ongoing commitment to this challenging work,” said Keith Krueger, CEO of CoSN.
