Data Privacy & Security

Jeffco Public Schools K-12 education plays an important role in the development of our students on their path to becoming successful citizens. We adhere to a strong set of values and have adopted and implemented core policies and practices that help guide the District's operations in our quest to deliver quality education to our students.

The threat to our information assets has never been so great. Vulnerabilities range from a stolen laptop to denial-of-service attacks to a misconfigured password. Yet, small changes in behavior can have a huge impact on information security. That's why it's every employee's duty – from the executive level to the teacher in the classroom to make security a priority.

These webpages aim to provide full transparency on how we protect our most important data – that of our students and staff.
