The maker of ClassDojo, a popular behavioral tracking app used in schools across the United States, announced revisions on Tuesday in the way it retains student information.
Starting in January, the company intends to keep students’ behavioral records for only one school year.
“We are not a data company. So we have no need to keep any data beyond allowing it to be communicated between teachers, parents and students,” Sam Chaudhary, the co-founder of ClassDojo, wrote in an email to a reporter. “We think one year will give busy parents an opportunity to find time to review this information.”
