Websites and Apps Used at EWSD
List of Sites and Apps, with Privacy Policies and Terms of Service
This is a list of websites and apps used by students in Essex Westford School District.
We are beginning the work to collect signed agreements from vendors we contract with to ensure data privacy and protection of personal information.
We will add to that list of vendors in the coming months. Additionally, our Educational Technologists and Technology Department are working with faculty in all of our buildings to ensure that our schools know about our efforts. We are also working with the Vermont Student Data Privacy Consortium.
The Student Data Privacy Consortium - which began in Vermont in 2018, grew out of an initiative started by the Cambridge, Mass. public school system. It has since spread to 20 states including ours. Vermont has developed and shared a consistent privacy agreement with online sites and vendors. Now, instead of Vermont and EWSD school district following their terms of service, they agree to ours.

Ensuring teachers and students everywhere have access to technology to learn and work together fits naturally with that mission. That is why we provide educators with powerful solutions that are affordable, safe and easy to use.
