Student Data Privacy Public Forums - 2018



Informational Webinar About the Feedback Forums

Student Data Privacy Public Forums Announcement

These forums took place in 2018 and this page is provided as an archive for informational purposes. The public forum comment period is now closed.

The New York State Education Department is seeking stakeholder and public input as it develops regulations implementing New York’s student data privacy law, Education Law §2-d. We seek input specifically on (i) student data privacy; and (ii) suggestions for possible additions to the 2-d bill of rights for data privacy and security.  To facilitate this, 14 public forums have been scheduled across the state to gather feedback.


To participate at one of the public forums, individuals must register at the location upon arrival. Registered individuals will be assigned a number which will indicate the order in which they will speak during the forum. To allow for as many speakers as possible, each person will have a maximum of three minutes to speak. Registration for all forums starts at 5:30pm, and forums will begin at 6pm.


The forums are scheduled for two hours and so there are limited speaking spots. If there are more speakers at a forum than available speaking slots.

For more information about Student Data Privacy and Education Law 2-d, please visit the Department’s website;
