Because the protection and privacy of student data is paramount, members of the public will have theopportunity to offer input to state education officials on New York’s student data privacy law, Education Law2-D. Specifically, the state is seeking input on student data privacy and any suggestions for possible additions to the law’s “Parents’ Bill of Rights.”

A short presentation will be provided at the beginning of the session. However, members of the public are encouraged to get detailed information about Education Law 2-D at this web site:http://www.nysed.gov/student-data-privacy.
The primary purpose of this forum is to gather public input on draft regulations and implementation of the law; it will not include discussion or debate with representatives from the New York State Education Department.
