Approved Tools & Resources
The vision of Northwest ISD is to empower educators with skills they need to review and understand the privacy policies and the terms of conditions for tools they want to use with students. While we have recommended tools and vet many of our digital partners through a DSA (Data Sharing Agreement), we do not want to stifle the teachers ability to seek out other resources. Therefore, NISD has an online Privacy Certification course with that will empower the teacher to keep student data safe. The specific objectives for this course are as follows:

1. Describe the connection between data privacy and your role as a teacher and employee. 
2. Express the importance of balancing technology and learning goals with privacy and security responsibilities.
3. Identify key competencies necessary to promote digital privacy and safety for students. 


Educators are responsible for reviewing the terms and conditions of every tool they use. It is of utmost importance to be cognizant of the student age requirements and the student data that is collected by the tool. For more information on student privacy, please visit
