Student Data Privacy

On January 13, 2020, the NYS Board of Regents adopted regulations to implement Education Law Section 2-d. Education  Law 2-d and Part 121 of the Commissioner’s Regulations outline requirements for school districts and BOCES related to the  protection of the personally identifiable information of students, as well as some teacher and principal information. The law  and the regulations require schools to undertake a multi-pronged approach to information governance.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are "eligible students." Parents or eligible students have the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school.
