The Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC) has developed A Guide to Privacy and Assess to Information in Ontario Schools. This guide describes the obligations and rights that school boards, principals, teachers and administrators have under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA).
They have also developed a series of fact sheets to provide teachers with general information about popular subjects such as protecting students’ privacy online, privacy in the school and a more detailed fact sheet on privacy and access to information in Ontario’s schools. For parents we developed a fact sheet and brochure about children’s privacy in schools.
