Privacy and Ed Law 2-D

 As a parent, you may be aware the New York State Education Department is making a stronger push to monitor the efficacy of school districts in meeting the mandates set forth by part 121 of Education Law 2-D. These actions are being taken by the state to ensure that student (and some teacher) data privacy is being regarded with the utmost security, both in-district and by any approved third parties.

This page contains the four mandatory items that should be hosted on the district’s website, in addition to four elements that, while not required by the law, are recommended to include for the benefit of the public. To view any of these elements, please click on the respective link(s) below.
