Student Data Privacy

Data privacy refers to the protection and management of personal information in order to prevent unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. It involves ensuring that sensitive data is kept secure and only accessed by authorized personnel for legitimate purposes, while also providing individuals with the right to control how their data is collected, used, and shared.

Student Data protections are governed by the following federal laws:

  • CIPA - Children's Internet Protection Act
  • COPPA - Children's Online Privacy Protection Act

Setting Up Two-Factor Authentication

Online safety is important to us and is a priority for Eanes ISD.  With the recent increase of scam and phishing emails, we are encouraging all staff to activate two-factor authentication on their individual Eanes ISD account.  Two-factor authentication alerts the user if anyone attempts to login to systems using their specific username and password and limits the severity of the security breach on systems and applications you may routinely access.  

Follow the steps on this handout to activate two-factor authentication.  If you need assistance completing the process contact Technology Services.
