Student Data Privacy Information
Taylorville CUSD #3 takes our student's data information seriously. We are committed to protecting the information security of TCUSD #3 students in accordance with the latest version of the SOPPA. Effective July 1, 2021, school districts will be required by the Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA) to provide additional guarantees that student data is protected when collected by educational technology companies, and that data is used for beneficial purposes only (105 ILCS 85).
