SOPPA Updates for Illinois & Chicago Public Schools
Chicago Public Schools
In Spring 2021, CPS opened an RFQ for "Educational Technology Products", to approve a pool of pre-qualified vendors. FUSE was recommended for adoption, and is fully approved for use in CPS. Our contract includes a provision for use of the various third party websites utilized in FUSE that require logins.
In June 2021, FUSE moved to a standard Data Privacy Agreement for partner schools. Because we are located in IL, our default data agreement is the IL-NDPA-V1.0a. Districts that wish to sign on to this agreement may do so by completing Exhibit E and submitting it to Northwestern for signature. The originating LEA is East Maine School District 63. You will find our agreement linked on their list of approved vendors. As of 9/1/2022, 11 districts in IL have signed on to the IL-NDPA.
For additional information, please email the FUSE Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Online resources which require a student sign-in
If your district does not allow students to log in to a particular site, we encourage you to consider a shared account, where the facilitator creates a general account that students can use to log in and access the tool. For more information, please visit our shared accounts article.
