PARENTS’ BILL OF RIGHTS FOR DATA PRIVACY AND SECURITY

  •  

    Pursuant to the New York Education Law Section 2-d (“Section 2-d”) and its implementing regulations:

    A student’s personally identifiable information (“PII”) cannot be sold or released for any commercial purposes.

    The School District assures that the confidentiality of electronically stored PII is protected using safeguards that comport with industry standards and best practices, including but not limited to, encryption, secure firewalls and password protection when student data is stored or transferred.

    Parents have a right to inspect and review the complete contents of the student’s educational record, including portions of the record that are stored electronically, even when the record is maintained by a third-party contractor.

    Parents have a right to the New York State Education Department (“NYSED”) student data element list that NYSED collects for authorized uses at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/irs/sirs/.

    Parents have the right to have complaints about possible breaches of student data addressed. Complaints may be submitted to
