About the Student Privacy Policy Office

The Student Privacy Policy Office (SPPO) leads Department efforts to protect student privacy by providing leadership, oversight, and coordination to ensure Department and field compliance with several Federal privacy laws and regulations, most notably Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The office collaborates with other Federal agencies and educational technology entities with roles in protecting student privacy and provides technical assistance and training to educational agencies and institutions, including schools, LEAs, IHEs, SEAs, and other relevant organizations on issues related to compliance with privacy regulations and statutes.
