On September 21, 2015, the Ventura County Office of Education (VCOE) hosted an iKeepSafe workshop, Got Student Data Privacy Concerns? What the Experts Are Saying!  While attendees heard from a variety of experts including Marsali Hancock, President and CEO of iKeepSafe, the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, and Data Quality Campaign, it became apparent that more learning opportunities and support for districts were needed not only to ensure compliance, but to foster a safe and healthy digital learning environment for all stakeholders.  

To answer this need VCOE, together with its districts and some in nearby counties, is forming an e-Safety Task Force.  Supported by iKeepSafe and Fagen, Friedman and Fulfrost, the goal is to share a replicable e-Safety Committee model for any interested district.  This site is intended to be a dynamic collaborative documentation of our work.  Please remember to respect intellectual property through permission and/or proper citation.  We will continue to add resources, so visit this site often.  

For more information, please contact Task Force Co-Chair Dana Greenspan at dgreenspan@vcoe.org or 805.383.9325.
