DATA SECURITY AND PRIVACY REQUIREMENTS
The law also requires that District contracts with third-party contractors that receive personally identifiable information (PII) must contain a signed bill of rights and supplemental information. In turn, each educational agency is required to publish on its website the Parents’ Bill of Rights and supplemental information for each software contract.
The Sherburne-Earlville Board of Education has established regulations regarding the protection of “personally identifiable information” of student and teachers/principal under Education Law §2-d and Part 121 of the Commissioner of Education; the protection of “private information” under State Technology Law §208 and the NY SHIELD Act; and procedures to notify persons affected by breaches or unauthorized access of protected information.

Education Law 2-d requires each NYS educational agency to publish its Data Privacy and Security Policy. SECSD’s policy is titled “Information and Data Privacy Security, Breach and Notification” and is posted under the “Technology Policies” heading on the right side of its Board of Education webpage. You can click the header to see this policy, which also is located on our online Board of Education page.

The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) affords parents certain rights regarding our conduct of surveys, collection, and use of information for marketing purposes, and certain physical exams. These rights transfer from the parents to a student who is 18 years old or an emancipated minor under State law.
