Mattawan Consolidated School is a growing school district just west of Kalamazoo and Portage, Michigan. Covering approximately 52 square miles, this family-oriented, education-minded community is attracting residents from the surrounding area and is becoming home to individuals and families new to the Kalamazoo area.


The Challenge

With 400 staff and 4000+ students, the IT team at Mattawan Consolidated School is now tasked with maintaining the same level of controls for data stored in the cloud as it does with data stored on local file servers. Privacy and compliance continue to be the number one priority for the IT staff.

Take, for example, all the IEP documents (Individual Education Plan). The school owns hundreds of these documents, and each one contains sensitive and private information about each student participating in this program. It's key that we have the visibility and control to make sure these documents comply with privacy regulation.

The Solution

After installing Cisco Cloudlock on Mattawan's staff domain, the IT team was able to find all of the sensitive documents, review and correct sharing permissions, and make sure users comply with privacy regulations and best practices.


Using Cisco Cloudlock allowed Mattawan Consolidated Schools to comply with privacy regulations such as FERPA and CIPA.
