Securing education records through digitisation
Compliance with education records retention requirements
In Compu-Stor’s work for schools around Australia, we have learned about the requirements & importance of retaining records, some of which could also contain key information regarding child safety. In Victoria & NSW these records are now required to be retained by private schools for at least 45 years and there are similar requirements in other states. For government schools in Victoria it has recently been extended to 75 years.
Long term retention & protection of records
To prevent possible loss or damage to these key paper-based education records through usage, old age, fire or flood, we help our clients digitise these records and store digital backups off-site to ensure that they will be always accessible into the future
Privacy & integrity of the records
The sensitive nature of the content of these records makes them highly confidential and they can provide critical information in a future court case. It is therefore essential to ensure that they are not leaked, stolen, nor tampered with in any way. To help our customers avoid these risks, we provide them with secure & restricted digital access to these records and tracking.
Benefits of digitising a wider range of education records
Beyond securing the long-term retention of Child Safety records, the digitisation of other education records can bring further benefits.
Our document management software can drive efficiencies across all areas of the school such as HR, student records and payroll – including TASS integration.
We can even help schools mitigate risk through timely flags and reminders for key compliance documents such as WWC and police checks.
