State Ed Seeks Public Input on Student Data Privacy Law

Friday, May 4, 2018

Because the protection and privacy of student data is paramount, OCM BOCES Logosmembers of the public will have the opportunity to offer input to state education officials on New York’s student data privacy law, Education Law 2-D. Specifically, the state is seeking input on student data privacy and any suggestions for possible additions to the law’s “Parents’ Bill of Rights.”

OCM BOCES will be hosting one of 14 public forums across the state from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, at the OCM BOCES Main Campus, 110 Elwood Davis Road, Liverpool, NY 13088. To register for this event,  visit the OCM BOCES Registration Page

Anyone interested in speaking at the forum must register to do so. Registration for speakers will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the door.

A short presentation will be provided at the beginning of the session. However, members of the public are encouraged to get detailed information about Education Law 2-D on the New York State Education Department Web site.

The primary purpose of this forum is to gather public input on draft regulations and implementation of the law; it will not include discussion or debate with representatives from the New York State Education Department.

If you cannot attend the May 8 session, you can also submit input to the state electronically at PrivacyForumComment@nysed.gov.

Here are details about the upcoming forum at OCM BOCES:
