The District is required to provide for the identification, detection, and response to patterns, practices, or specific activities (“Red Flags”) that could indicate identity theft of students. This is because the District serves as a creditor in relation to its students. The President/Superintendent is directed to develop procedures to implement an Identity Theft Prevention Program (ITPP) to control reasonably foreseeable risks to students from identity theft.
