SDCOE's CoSN Trusted Learning Environment (TLE) Cohort Program
  • Summary: Developed through the collaborative insight and work of national educational leadership organizations and school systems nationwide, the Trusted Learning Environment (TLE) Seal Program embodies the commitment of school leadership to safeguard the digital privacy of student data. The TLE Seal Program is the only all-encompassing program addressing school system student data privacy and security. It provides school system leaders with the guidance they need to put effective privacy practices in place, and signal to parents and communities that they are taking measurable steps to assure the protection of student information.
    SDCOE's CoSN TLE Cohort Program was created to assist participating cohort members in earning the seal through collaborative efforts. SDCOE will provide the Program Management and Cohort participant support to enable participating organizations to more efficiently apply for their TLE Seal.
