In June 2019, the Student Data Privacy Council formed (Chapter 398, Acts of 2019).
First, the Council is to study the development and implementation of the Student Data Privacy Act of 2015 (Chapter 413, Acts of 2015). Next, the Council will evaluate how the Act is protecting covered information from unauthorized access destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. Further, the Council will ascertain whether reasonble security practices and procedures, as well as reasonable privacy controls, have been implemented and maintained to protect information under the Act. In addition, similar law and best practices in other states will be reviewed and analyzed by the Council, as will technology developments that might relate to student data privacy.
Based on its findings, the Council may recommend statutory or regulatory changes to the Student Data Privacy Act of 2015. The Council also may recommend that its own termination date be repealed to enable the Council to permanently evaluate student data privacy issues.
Authorization for the Council ends May 31, 2021.
