District Personnel / Data User Student Data Privacy



From a Security Admininistration standpoint, how is DPI's Data Privacy architecture structured?




As an Administrator, you are part of a 3-tiered hierarchy to manage security in your District for DPI applications.


The hierarcy is comprised of the following roles: 


- District Security Administrators (DSAs)


- Application Administrators


- End Users (Teachers, Administrators, other district personnel)

An overview of the hierarchy and security access request process:



Key Points:


1. DSAs can give Application Administrators in your district their access.


2. To become a DSA or assign a DSA delegate, you must get in touch with DPI via the helpdesk ticket link.


3. Once you are granted access, you can reference the Secure Home Information page for information on Secure Home, ASM, and WAMS.  


Next Steps:




- Contact DPI directly by filling out the District Administrator Authorization Form here




- Contact your local District Security Administrator.



- Not sure who the DSA for your district is? Look them up by district here!
