Raytown School District gets technology ‘Seal of Trust’

On Tuesday, the Raytown C-2 School District was one of seven in the country to receive the Trusted Learning Environment Seal, a designation given by the Consortium for School Networking to school districts nationwide that demonstrate a commitment to student privacy and security.

Specifically, the Raytown School District, the only one in Missouri to get the designation, received the seal for its dedication in protecting student data.

“These schools—representing small, large, urban, and suburban communities—have built a culture of trust and transparency. They continue to make these efforts every day while taking advantage of the benefits and promise of technology in modern learning settings,” said Keith Krueger, CEO of the Consortium for School Networking.

Other districts that received the seal were Butler County (Alabama) Schools, Cambridge (Massachusetts) Public Schools, Denver (Colorado) Public Schools, the Lewisville (Texas) Independent School District, and Miami-Dade (Florida) County Public Schools. The Consortium for School Networking received 90 applications for the seal.

As a school district, we are trusted with the safety and security of our students,” said Raytown Superintendent Allan Markley. “This does not stop at just physical safety. We must also take measures to ensure the security and privacy of our student’s data. Raytown Quality Schools has made data privacy a priority through our policies and practices, which are evident in our data governance manual. It is an honor to be a part of the first cohort recognized for this effort.”
