Student data privacy is in the news more than ever before: In 2015, 175 bills have so far been introduced in 45 states, and at least three federal bill drafts are circulating in Congress. Although schools have always kept records on students, technological advances have made student data more vulnerable, and the wave of new legislation reflects this concern. However, new technology has also opened the door to better data collection, better data analysis, and more personalized learning.

State boards of education play a key governing role in the effort to protect student data while also ensuring it can be used to enhance learning. Thirty-seven state boards have at least some authority over student data privacy, and their authority expands every year as new laws and regulations are passed. Join NASBE on June 11, 2015, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (EDT) to hear about the new student data privacy laws and national trends resulting from the 2015 state legislative sessions. Rachel Anderson, Data Quality Campaign’s senior associate for policy and advocacy, and Amelia Vance, NASBE director of education data and technology, will highlight lessons learned and steps state board members and other policymakers can take to move their states forward on this important issue.
