A07872 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A7872A

TITLE OF BILL:  An act to amend the education law, in relation to the
release of personally identifiable information

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:  This bill protects personally
identifiable information from release to certain third parties.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 allows parents of students and students of 18 years of age
or older to request that personally identifiable information and/or
biometric record not be disclosed to certain third parties and
prohibits the education department and schools that receive the
request from disclosing such information of that particular student,
except in cases where they are required to do so by law, court order
or subpoena, state or federal audits or evaluations to certain
authorized representatives, or for health or safety emergencies. This
section also directs SED to develop a form to be used for such
requests. Section 2 is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:  New York State has recently agreed to share
confidential student information with commercial vendors and other
corporations. This information includes name, address, lest scores,
disciplinary and attendance records, raze, ethnicity, disabilities and
other sensitive information. Such student data is useful to
corporations for business development, marketing educational products
and grant programs. At this time, however, state law does not
authorize parents and students to protect personal data from
disclosure to these third parties. This legislation provides
safeguards: it allows parents and students to prohibit schools from
sharing personal student data and directs the State Education
Department to develop the necessary information and forms necessary
for parents and students.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:  New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:  None

EFFECTIVE DATE:  This act shall take effect 90 days after it shall
become law.
