Online Conferencing Guidance

In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, school districts have leveraged online conferencing platforms to stay connected. Officials are raising concerns about security due to several reports of uninvited visitors crashing meetings. While educators continue the transition to digital learning, this site is a live document designed to assist school districts with best practices for providing secure online conferencing.

Educators should only use online conferencing tools approved and provided through their local school district to meet data privacy standards and regulations. Please use a school district account for all meetings.
