What is SOPPA?
SOPPA is a state law that governs and protects the privacy and security of student data when it is shared with and collected by educational technology companies. SOPPA regulates these companies that provide web-based sites, services, online and mobile applications that are used primarily for K to 12 purposes.
SOPPA also places responsibilities on school districts, including requiring data-sharing agreements with many of these companies. SOPPA also gives parents certain rights when it comes to their children's data.
