Education Law 2-D Regulations Part 121 Protect PII

The New York State Education Law 2-d focuses on the privacy and security of our school population. It protects student personally identifiable information (PII) from unauthorized disclosure.

On January 28, 2020, Part 121 of the Commissioner of Education's regulations became effective. These regulations require educational agencies (public schools, charter schools, school districts, and BOCES) to be diligent when protecting Personally Identifiable  Information (PII) and teacher and principal APPR data by employing industry best practices that align with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework v1.1
