Come Join Us...

The Access 4 Learning (A4L) Community is proud to host its 2nd Annual Privacy & Interoperability Symposium providing two days of “tactical” data interoperability (via SIF Specifications) and privacy (via the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC)) conversations highlighting real-world work and successful, challenging case studies.  Increased interoperability without the inclusion of privacy requirements equals increased RISK.  Both data sharing and privacy parameters must be identified and communicated.  Addressing both makes the A4L Community, and its partners, unique. 

Audience:  This event will be of interest to any/all School District, State Leaders and marketplace providers committed to data privacy and data exchange.
