In some cases, the teachers, and schools and school district administrators who license our products and services enter into additional reporting or research agreements for the provision of reports that contain aggregate data by demographic categories (gender, ethnicity, free or reduced lunch status, etc.). In such cases, the teachers, schools and/or school district administrators provide Carnegie Learning with the information required to provide these reports, which may personally identify students. When such agreements are in place, reports containing this information are provided only to the teachers, and schools and school district administrators authorized to receive that information. In such cases, data is held securely and only Carnegie Learning employees directly involved in producing these reports have access to students’ personally identifiable information.

Carnegie Learning agrees not to attempt to re-identify any de-identified data. We may store de-identified data indefinitely.
Schools, school districts and individuals may ask for their data to be excluded from any de-identified data sets. To request such exclusion, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In connection with research studies, Carnegie Learning and/or its partners may publish or discuss aggregate data about student performance and results. Such publications never reference individual information, only aggregate statistics. Research projects that make use of such aggregate data are reviewed by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) which is responsible for approving the goals and procedures of the study, including those related to maintaining privacy of information. Such requirements may or may not include parental or student notification or approval. Schools or school districts provide prior consent to any research that involves interaction with the schools and their students’ information. Carnegie Learning is committed to abiding by IRB recommendations and requirements.
