NASBE Student Big Data May 2016 News

Snip from Amelia Vance (@AmeliaIVance) from NASBE on the latest student privacy legislative initiatives and opinions.

Some student data aggregation fits under the NIST Big Data working group’s framework.

  • NASBE will be holding its annual webinar with DQC on student privacy and the 2016 legislative session on May 26th from 3–4pm EST. NASBE will also be releasing an associated publication. Vance will send out the RSVP link on Tuesday with the formal release of The Standard. While you wait for the webinar, you should pay close attention to two soon-to-be laws which deviate from what we’ve seen in prior legislative sessions from Colorado and Connecticut.
  • NASBE will also be doing a series of regional boot camps on student privacy training for teachers and administrators, and it wants to know what your state or organization is doing so we can highlight it! Vance asks colleagues to contact her with any resources (or ideas about what needs to be included in training).
  • For any lawyers who are interested, Ms. Vance will be presenting on a May 19th webinar for the NSBA Council of School Attorneys (CLE credit provided).
  • ICYMI, Vance’s April report outlining lessons for policymakers on education data privacy.

The Standard publication is available after May 9.
