SCOTTS VALLEY, CA June 14, 2016 SchoolMessenger Communicate from West Corporation's Education group has received the FERPA privacy badge in recognition of its alignment with iKeepSafe's FERPA guidelines. SchoolMessenger Communicate (and its related InfoCenter app) are tools that help educational agencies and districts deliver school notifications and emergency alerts to parents by text message, voice call, email, and other means.

iKeepSafe's FERPA badge is the first independent assessment program for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The program seeks to help educators and parents identify edtech services and tools that protect student data privacy.

"We take our commitment to school data privacy and security seriously. We were an early signatory of the education technology industry's Student Privacy Pledge," said Robert Iskander, general manager, West's Education group. "Our iKeepSafe badge reinforces the fact that SchoolMessenger Communicate has become the trusted school-to-parent communications platform serving more than half of all schools."

"iKeepSafe congratulates West's Education group on taking this essential step in protecting students' personal information," said Marsali Hancock, president and CEO of iKeepSafe. "Each day, more school districts and parents are making privacy and safety a priority. It is important that they have a quick means of determining whether technology products are safe to use."

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