Student Resolution Advocate

Could a de-identified report somehow reveal who I am? I might be the only person in my community with a particular problem.

No. Information may be used in a report only if it is sufficiently de-identified and/or in an aggregated group of sufficient size to maintain anonymity. If an individual student wishes and gives explicit permission for the information to be carefully shared in appropiate settings in an effort to improve the learning enviornment, the information will be de-identified and then used prior to aggregation so that resolution or improvements may proceed.
