Who’s Listening?

Room listening devices, such as Amazon's Alexa and Echo or Google Home, cannot be used in our classrooms, offices or on the network. Technology Services has researched and discussed this with risk management.

Room listening devices violate FERPA as it relates to personally identifiable information and state law related to audio recording. These devices may also violate HIPAA, when a student's health or an IEP discussion is being held in proximity to the device. If you have one, please remove it from your classroom or office. Tech Services staff will disconnect any device found.

How these devices work:

We want to ensure privacy for all types of data, not just documents and student records. If you have one of these devices, please remove it from your classroom or office.
