Metadata Dictionary

Ogden Preparatory Academy, in compliance with HB 358 and SB 102, has initiated a strict policy and protocol procedure for evaluating all third-party vendors who have access to any student data.  Interactive websites and apps collect student data such as location, name, phone numbers, likes and dislikes, routines, and more. Ogden Preparatory Academy works to protect student data, both submitted by the student and generated by third-party companies. Ogden Preparatory Academy evaluates all third-party vendors to ensure that student data is secure and vendors meet all state and federal requirements.

In order for a third-party vendor to be approved, they must go through the evaluation steps:

  1. Teachers and Staff will submit the website/app to the IT System Security Manager (ITSSM).
  2. The ITSSM and Student Data Manager (SDM) will work to establish a security agreement with the vendor.
  3. After the agreement is in place between Ogden Preparatory Academy and the vendor, the information will be added to OPA’s Metadata Dictionary.
  4. If no agreement can be established, the website/app will be blocked for use and no information shared.
