Student Data Privacy & State Policymakers: What You Should Know & What You Can Do

In nearly every state, there is a complex and growing debate over student data privacy. Although schools have always kept records on students, new technology has opened the door to better data collection, better data analysis, and more personalized learning. But this technology has also sparked fears of data misuse. States, districts, and schools often rely on third-party service providers to securely manage their education data. Ensuring these service providers use the data appropriately and safeguard student privacy requires an understanding of data’s value and how its use can be effectively governed While there are a number of federal and state laws in place that protect student data, state policymakers play a critical role in ensuring that student data is always collected—and protected—responsibly.

Join NASBE on June 11, 2014, from 3:00 to 4:00 P.M. (EDT) as Data Quality Campaign’s Rachel Anderson and NASBE Policy Analyst Amelia Vance unpack the student data privacy debate and review recent developments in legislatures and state boards across the country. The webinar will highlight resources and steps state board members and other policymakers can use to take action on this important issue, including an exclusive preview of a NASBE issue brief on student data privacy, due out this summer.
