Skodel has completed its manual and technical review with Internet Keep Safe Coalition© (iKeepSafe) to ensure our software is COPPA, FERPA and CSPC compliant in the way we handle and protect data for our American schools. Data handling and privacy has always been a priority for Skodel, particularly given the sensitive nature of wellbeing data. It is important to us that our schools feel safe when implementing Skodel Check-In and iKeepSafe is the industry leader in technical and manual reviews of data practices. As Skodel continues to rollout product enhancements that serve our mission to give all students a voice that is heard and acted on, we look forward to continuing to work with iKeepSafe to ensure these new features meet all compliance standards for schools across America.
The iKeepSafe mission is to provide a safe digital landscape for children, schools, and families by supporting the protection of student privacy, while advancing learning in a digital culture. To support this mission, we provide data privacy certifications to technology companies, educational resources to schools, and information to the community.
iKeepSafe certifies digital products as compliant with state and federal requirements for handling protected personal information. They help organizations achieve and maintain compliance through product assessments, monthly monitoring, annual training, and assistance with remediation.
Governors, First Spouses, and State Attorneys General from throughout the United States joined with law enforcement agencies, and child safety advocates joined in the formation of iKeepSafe, a national effort promoting the safe and healthy use of technology. iKeepSafe was founded by Jacalyn S. Leavitt, former First Lady of Utah, in 2005. Over the past decade, iKeepSafe has evolved into a leading organization trusted internationally by families, educators, and industry.
