April 28, 2016–iKeepSafe announced that it will be awarding the California Privacy badge to StudentView, a DecisionInsite product. DecisionInsite is a technology company that helps their clients understand issues surrounding student enrollment through “decision-able” analytics. StudentView will be the first product to receive the iKeepSafe California Privacy Badge.

iKeepSafe’s California Privacy Badge is the first independent assessment program specifically tailored to emerging student data privacy legislation, including the Student Online Personal Information Protection Act (SOPIPA). The program seeks to help educators and parents in the state of California identify edtech services and tools that protect student data privacy.

StudentView is DecisionInsite’s technology platform and the gateway to Enrollment Analytics and TransitOptimizer solutions. Designed specifically for school district leaders, the StudentView System bridges the gap between data and “decision-able” information. StudentView is a cloud-based mapping interface built on Google™ Maps.

“DecisionInsite is delighted to have participated in the iKeepSafe process,” said Michael Regele, CEO of DecisionInsite. “We feel this is a tangible way to demonstrate our commitment to student data privacy and security for our School District clients.”

“By undergoing the California Privacy assessment, DecisionInsite has successfully communicated their dedication to student data privacy,” said Marsali Hancock, President and CEO of iKeepSafe. “Because our youth are learning and growing in a digital culture, schools need to ensure that the tools they depend on have undergone a careful privacy review. They can now feel confident that DecisionInsite’s StudentView platform meets iKeepSafe’s quality standard of data privacy protection.”

Products participating in the California Privacy assessment must undergo annual re-evaluation to continue displaying the iKeepSafe badge. For the evaluation, an independent privacy expert reviewed DecisionInsite, its privacy policy and practices, as well as its data security practices.
