Frewsburg Central School District’s Data Privacy and Security Commitment
The District is committed to maintaining the privacy and security of student data and teacher and principal data and will follow all applicable laws and regulations for the handling and storage of this data in the District and when disclosing or releasing it to others, including, but not limited to, third-party contractors. The District adopts this policy to implement the requirements of Education Law Section
2-d and its implementing regulations, as well as to align the District's data privacy and security practices with the National Institute for Standards and Technology Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity (Version 1.1)
What is Ed Law 2-D?
In January 2019, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) proposed regulatory changes to increase information security and privacy measures to safeguard the personally identifiable information (PII) of students and school personnel, as defined here. Education Law 2-D protects any information that can be used to identify an individual either directly (e.g. student’s name or names of parents or family members) or indirectly when linked with other information (e.g. date of birth and mother’s maiden name) in New York’s educational agencies.
