SED Announces Student Data Privacy Public Forums

SED-BORThe New York State Education Department seeks stakeholder and public input as it develops regulations implementing New York’s student data privacy law, Education Law §2-d. We seek input specifically on (i) student data privacy; and (ii) suggestions for possible additions to the 2-d bill of rights for data privacy and security. To facilitate this, 14 public forums have been scheduled across the state to gather feedback.


To participate at one of the public forums, individuals must register at the location upon arrival. Registered individuals will be assigned a number which will indicate the order in which they will speak during the forum. To allow for as many speakers as possible, each person will have a maximum of three minutes to speak.


Written comments may be submitted electronically beginning May 2 and ending close of business on June 18 to The forums are scheduled for two hours and so there are limited speaking spots. If there are more speakers at a forum than available speaking slots, individuals who are unable to submit their comments in person may do so electronically at SED will review all comments submitted.
