SASID Policy for Email and Student Confidentiality~
The confidentiality of student information is important from both a legal and ethical standpoint. Email is not encrypted, and could in rare instances, be intercepted or mistakenly sent to the wrong recipient.
Going forward AIM Library requests that State Assigned ID numbers(SASID) be used in emails to discuss students in order to make identification of the student(s) difficult to all but the intended recipient.
It is good practice to be sure that any individuals to whom you send student information, regardless of the format used, have a “legitimate educational interest” in that student.
