TrustEd Apps Pledge

The TrustEd Apps Program begins with our pledge to put open standards and data privacy at the forefront of education technology integrations.

Today’s challenges are unprecedented.

Students and teachers need a resilient, flexible, safe, and data-rich technology experience—whether in the classroom, online, or across both—that improves productivity, increases engagement, and facilitates student success. School districts and universities that have put interoperability and data privacy enabled by open standards at the center of their edtech ecosystem requirements have been better able to support their faculty and students as they strive to make the most out of education technology.

Why open standards?

Open standards are not just a better way. They are the only viable way for institutions, governments, and suppliers to invest together to address today’s challenges and enable greater opportunities for innovation. Open standards work, and they are widely available.

“The TrustEd Apps Pledge positions education organizations to leverage our collective voice to require an even playing field when purchasing and implementing instructional tools."
Emily E. Bell, Ed.D., Chief Information Officer, Fulton County Schools
