Texas Student Privacy Alliance

Common Student Data Privacy Agreement

The first outcome of the Texas Student Privacy Alliance is the adoption and implementation of a Common Student Data Privacy Agreement to be used by all member schools when implementing any online application. By adopting such a contract all vendors and schools have common expectations when entering into a relationship or implementation without having to renegotiate terms in every new instance.

Texas Student Privacy Alliance

The TxSPA is a collaboration of Texas school districts that share common concerns around student privacy. The goal of the TxSPA is to set standards of both practice and expectations around student privacy such that all parties involved have a common understanding of expectations.

TxSPA Training

The Texas CTO Council is offering several opportunities for training over the next few months. This training is free to anyone wanting to participate.

Account requests for the TxSPA website will be approved immediately after the conclusion of each webinar. Attending districts are encouraged to invite their team members responsible for vetting and/or procurement of digital resources. We ask that multiple attendees from a single district register only once and access the webinar via a single connection site.


The next On-Boarding Training for the TxSPA Portal is January 8, 2021, 11:00am- 12:00pm, CST. Register now!
