Data Privacy and Security

NYSED Memo Regarding Compliance with Education Law § 2-d and Part 121
In June, the Board of Regents approved the emergency amendment to Part 121 that extended the deadline for educational agencies to post their Data Security and Privacy policy from July 1, 2020, to October 1, 2020. That date has now passed and the NYS Education Department (“Department”) expects that all educational agencies are now aligned with the requirements of both the statute and regulation. To aid agencies in their compliance with the above requirements as they further develop their data privacy and security programs, the Department has developed some templates and models that can serve as resources.(10/28/20)
