Student Privacy & K-12 Data Governance

  • OPI Data Governance Committee - The OPI Data Governance Committee establishes and enforces policies related to the collection of, access to, and use and dissemination of all information and data at the OPI, including student information. 


  • OPI Student Records Confidentiality Policy - All student information and data published by the OPI follows the OPI’s Student Records Confidentiality Policy, which prohibits the OPI from disclosing data from student groups that are 5 or fewer in number or would otherwise reveal the identity of an individual student.  Montana has many small schools and small sub-group populations where an individual student’s identity could be revealed without this safeguard. In places where data has been suppressed to protect student privacy, you will see an asterisk ( * ) instead.
