89Cloud Infrastructure ServicesThe K-12 mandate is the education and preparation of students to contribute to the modern world, while conforming to a tight budget. Todays K-12 is driven by IT; through its ability to deliver curricula, experience, and administrative services.

910Privacy and Cloud Computing in K-12Fordham University StudyThe key findings from the analysis are:

95% of districts rely on cloud services for a diverse range of functions including datamining related to student performance, support for classroom activities, student guidance, data hosting, as well as special services such as cafeteria payments and transportation planning.

Cloud services are poorly understood, non-transparent, and weakly governed: only25% of districts inform parents of their use of cloud services, 20% of districts fail to havepolicies governing the use of online services, and a sizeable plurality of districts haverampant gaps in their contract documentation, including missing privacy policies.

Districts frequently surrender control of student information when using cloudservices: fewer than 25% of the agreements specify the purpose for disclosures ofstudent information, fewer than 7% of the contracts restrict the sale or marketing ofstudent information by vendors, and many agreements allow vendors to change the terms.11Student Information Privacy RecommendationsFordham University Study / December 2013
