• Data Sharing Agreement with Sender Districts Conducting Studies to Improve Instruction

    Illinois School Student Records Act (“ISSRA”) and the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”), authorize the District to share, without parental consent, student information under certain conditions with sender schools that are conducting studies to improve instruction. The District contracts with its sender schools/school districts to provide student standardized testing information, such as Measurements of Academic Progress (MAP), to authorized representatives of its feeder schools. The goal of this data sharing is to improve instruction at the sender schools so as to improve student performance in District 86 and to enable District 86 to evaluate its own educational programs.
