BINGHAMTON, NY –

The New York State Department of Education held a public forum at Broome Tioga BOCES Monday night, seeking input on the “Student Data Privacy Law” (Education Law 2-d).

A representative from the Department of Education met with parents, teachers and other stakeholders to gather information and answer questions from the people working closest to the law.

The privacy law, passed in 2014, protects the privacy of personal identifiable information of students, teachers and parents.

The department is planning to make fourteen stops across the state to hear from educators and families since new regulations are going into effect in 2019.

Monday’s forum was the one and only in Broome County. Last week the department visited Rochester and Buffalo.
