Student Data Privacy: Education Law

New York State Education Law Section 2-d and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act provide clear protections for student data, and NYSED is committed to complying with all applicable laws. We are also committed to promoting the least intrusive data collection policies practicable that advance the goals of improving academic achievement, empowering parents with information and advancing efficient and effective school operations while minimizing the collection and transmission of personally identifiable information, and will work to ensure that this is reflected in the practices of every educational agency in New York State by developing policies and standards that will provide clear guidance to the field.
