Welcome to the Maine Student Privacy Alliance (MESPA).
The MESPA is a collaboration of Maine school districts that share common concerns around student privacy. The goal of the MESPA is to set standards of both practice and expectations around student privacy such that all parties involved have a common understanding of expectations.
To this end, the first outcome of the MESPA is the adoption and implementation of a common Student Data Privacy Agreement to be used by all member schools when implementing any online application. By adopting such a contract all vendors and schools have common expectations when entering into a relationship or implementation without having to renegotiate terms in every new instance.
This site will be used to communicate both the districts and vendors that have signed the contract. This will enable all MESPA member districts to leverage vendor relationships with other member schools to smoothly develop a new relationship.
