The Wall Street Journal reports Maryland's Montgomery County Public Schools have taken up an annual purge of its databases that contain data of more than 162,000 students. Montgomery County is the first district in the state and one of just a handful of districts nationwide to take up the clearing venture. The "Data Deletion Week" will clear student internet histories from servers run by Google, Apple and GoGuardian, which offers services to help teachers manage classrooms and monitor students. GoGuardian CEO Advait Shinde said the purge “is a positive way to create a partnership between parents and schools on the management of data on school accounts that is used to provide a better and safer online learning experience.” (Registration may be required to access this story.)
