Data Privacy and Security


CDE will be holding a public meeting discussing data privacy on May 24, 2016 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm.  The meeting will be held in the Boardroom at 201 E. Colfax, Denver, CO 80203.  Topics that will be discussed are the new data privacy law and information regarding CDE’s vetting process for PII requests from researchers.  In addition, there will be a short public comment session.


In this age of data-driven decision making, data is foundational to the success of the process. Whether discussing student-achievement, program monitoring, education funding, accountability or any other education-related conversation, data is at the center of the discussion. The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) is required by state and federal law to collect and store student and educator records.

CDE takes seriously its obligation to protect the privacy of data collected, used, shared and stored. These pages contain state and federal policies CDE adheres to, data privacy and security procedures, as well as guidance and resources for various stakeholders.
