Privacy and Security
New York State Education Law 2-d went into effect in April, 2014. The law focused on the privacy and security of personally identifiable information (PII) of students, classroom teachers, and principals.
The Board of Regents adopted Part 121 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education on January 13, 2020. These rules will implement Education Law Section 2-d and provide guidance to educational agencies and their third-party contractors on ways to strengthen data privacy and security to protect student data and annual professional performance review data.
