SOPPA

Student Online Personal Protection Act

We are committed to protecting the information security of our students in accordance with the Student Online Personal Protection Act.

What is SOPPA?

The Student Online Personal Protection Act, or SOPPA, is the data privacy law that regulates student data collection and use by schools, the Illinois State Board of Education, and education technology (EdTech) vendors. This law takes effect on July 1, 2021

What does it mean for you?

If you are a parent or guardian, you will have greater control over your child’s personal information. In many cases, SOPPA gives parents the right to inspect, correct, and delete their child’s data, regardless of whether it is held by a school or a third party EdTech vendor.

MTHS SOPPA Compliance

At this time, we are beginning to compile our list of vendors and obtain signed contracts with them, in compliance with SOPPA. These resources will be located here.
