Keep student data under control
100% District Control
School districts always maintain full ownership and control over student data, deciding which vendors can sync which sections at which schools. School districts can easily revisit these decisions by adjusting their transmission settings, and can choose to discontinue use of Clever at any time.
Full FERPA Compliance
Clever is FERPA compliant under the School Official Exemption, and is also compliant with SOPIPA. We partner with leading school district security teams and experts to provide outstanding data stewardship, and vendors who work with Clever have agreed to protect student data in compliance with FERPA and SOPIPA.
Leading Security Infrastructure
Clever uses top-of-the-line security infrastructure at the software and network levels, to ensure that student data is always encrypted and transmitted securely. This includes use of TLS / SSL protocols, API call-level authentication, API bearer tokens with over 200 bits of entropy, two-factor authentication systems, and full perfect forward secrecy.
