“As an industry, it’s critical that we work together to ensure student data privacy and security remain top priorities. That starts with more transparency around the actual policies and processes that are in place,” said Kickboard CEO Jennifer Medbery. “When I founded Kickboard, there weren’t many resources for startups in these areas. So we’ve created a clear, concise, transparent, and easily understandable policy that can serve as a model in the education industry.”
Last fall, Kickboard was recognized for innovation in this area with an Honorable Mention in the Crystal Clear category of the 2014 Digital Innovation in Learning Awards (DILAs). The Crystal Clear category recognized excellence among companies that disclose privacy policies with clear, detailed descriptions of how data is used and who owns it.
