• What is New York State Education Law 2-D

    Pertains to the unathorized release of personally identifiable information. 

     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. The regulation went through multiple sets of revisions and three rounds of public comments and will go into effect January 29, 2020.  It will apply to both charter and traditional public schools. We thank the members of the Data Privacy Advisory Council, implementation planning and drafting workgroups that supported the Department’s Chief Privacy Officer, Temitope Akinyemi, through this process.

  • District Approved Software List

    Software (programs/web based applications) used in the District, both free and subscription-based, are vetted for compliance with New York State Education Law-2d when required by either the school district or BOCES.  This is a list that will be updated through out the year.  A link to the Privacy Policy contains additional information about the Data Privacy and Security agreement in place. In some cases we will use the software without a Data Privacy and Security agreement in place since no student Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is provided to the software provider.
