Technical rollout

A member of the ICON service desk will be in contact with your school’s nominated IT contact to start the Hapara deployment procedures for your school.

Privacy Compliance

When your school has made the decision to use Hapara, your school will need to manage the Hapara platform, communicate about it with stakeholders and address school privacy concerns.  

These resources are available to help your school with privacy compliance:

Schools will need to ensure that their standard collection notice, job applicant collection notice and acceptable use policies are updated to comply with privacy laws.
