Q by Aequitas Solutions Earns iKeepSafe California & FERPA Privacy Badges

Aequitas Solutions, Inc. and its Student Information System Q have been awarded the iKeepSafe FERPA and California Privacy badges in recognition of their alignment with iKeepSafe’s best practice guidelines for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the extensive California and Colorado state privacy laws. The badges signify that Aequitas and Q have been proactively and independently assessed by iKeepSafe, an experienced privacy protection organization.

iKeepSafe Privacy Assessment badges assist schools to easily identify websites, apps, data management platforms, or other technology products that are in compliance with various privacy laws governing student data. Products that carry the iKeepSafe seal provide educators and parents with assurance that the product meets iKeepSafe’s standards in the areas of privacy, safety, and security.

Q is a leading Student Information System that provides a comprehensive suite of modules and functions to manage all aspects of student data and performance for school districts, regional and state level K-12 clients.

“At Aequitas Solutions, Inc. we strive to provide the best Student Information System (SIS) and SIS centric services in the industry. Student data privacy and security is a critically important component of both our company and product success and an important factor in building and keeping our long-term relationships with our clients. Working with iKeepSafe is part of our ongoing commitment to ensure that we meet and exceed the security and privacy requirements of our clients. We are thrilled to be the first SIS vendor to receive the iKeepSafe certification.” John Uhler, CEO

Alan Simpson from iKeepSafe congratulated Aequitas Solutions for earning a FERPA and California State privacy badge. “By completing the rigorous iKeepSafe privacy assessment, Aequitas Solutions has demonstrated their dedication to protecting student data privacy. As the first SIS to earn an iKeepSafe badge, Q has established itself as a leader in this field.”

Products participating in the iKeepSafe assessment program must undergo annual re-evaluation to continue displaying the iKeepSafe badge. For the evaluation, an independent privacy expert reviewed Q, their privacy policy and practices, as well as their data security practices.

For over a decade, iKeepSafe has been a trusted resource for schools and parents looking for balanced information about safe and healthy use of connected technologies.
