At Forefront Education, we take the security of student information very seriously. Forefront Education supports teachers, schools, and districts by providing a web-based platform known as Forefront® that manages, organizes, stores, and creates assessment result reports. The company also supports districts that leverage student assessment results for instructional decision making and monitoring the implementation of instructional curricula.

Student and Teacher Information

Your educational organization uses Forefront Education’s services to manage and visualize classroom assessment results. The data your educational organization stores in Forefront may include the following information about students:

  • Demographic information including gender, ethnicity, and English language acquisition status
  • Student assessment results
  • School of attendance and course placement

If any information in Forefront is found to be erroneous, parents, guardians or eligible students should contact their school about getting that information corrected.

Forefront is used exclusively by school districts and their staff members. Students and parents do not have direct access to the program. Forefront Education does not analyze student data for marketing purposes and never shares personal student information with anyone who does.
