Frontline Education’s software solutions support over 4.1 million users daily in the education field across the US and abroad.

From professional development records to substitute placement to special education reports and more, we know districts depend on their digital resources. But at Frontline, we don’t just want to provide a data custodian that makes your work simpler. We want it to be safer, too. Both federal laws, like FERPA, and concerned parents alike expect student information to be protected.

That’s why we take district and student data security so seriously.

Staff, Student, District & School Data

FERPA & HIPPA Compliant

Streamline Your FERPA, HIPAA and State Privacy Compliance Efforts

Frontline has built its products and security program to align with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), so district leaders and parents alike can have peace of mind concerning their students’ information.

Both FERPA and HIPAA require that school districts safeguard personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI). The laws require a combination of technical, administrative and physical security controls to ensure data confidentiality, integrity and availability. Frontline Education’s products have been designed to provide highly secure technical and physical controls which form a solid foundation which customers can leverage as part of their compliance program.

At this time, the Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA) does not apply to any of our products. If in the future COPPA applies to any of our products, we will fully comply with all requirements and regulations.
