ACTION ALERT ==> STUDENT DATA PRIVACY

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Dear Neighbor,

Six bills related to student data privacy are scheduled for hearings this coming Thursday beginning at 8:15 a.m. (with the hearing likely reconvening in late afternoon/early evening) in the House Education Innovation Policy Committee, upon which I sit. I am the chief author of four of the bills and co-author on the other two.

Many parents are alarmed at the collection/third-party sharing of their children’s private data. If you are equally concerned I highly encourage you to attend the committee hearing this Thursday.

If you would like to give a one- to two-minute testimonial sharing your concern and/or personal experience, third-party sharing, data breach, etc., of student-private data, please let me know and I will work to try to get you added to the list of testifiers.

Below is the list of bills scheduled to be heard:

  • HF2898 (Lucero) - Student privacy in data on electronic devices provided by an educational institution protected, and penalties provided.

  • HF2899 (Lucero) - Student privacy with respect to electronic data in student information systems protected, and penalties provided.

  • HF2900 (Lucero) - Student privacy in personal electronic devices on campus protected, and civil penalties provided.

  • HF2762 (Erickson) - Education commissioner directed to develop plan to ensure privacy and security of students' personally identifiable information.

  • HF2671 (Lucero) - Student data access addressed, disclosure requirements affecting personally identifiable information about a student clarified, information in electronic student education records managed, student survey requirements established, and civil penalties provided.

  • HF2813 (Erickson) - Statutes governing parental rights in education cross-reference directory created.

Please know I am working hard to protect parental authority over their children’s education and student-private data. I will continue to send information out as events progress on these very important topics.

Sincerely,

Rep. Eric Lucero

State Representative
District 30B
Albertville, Hanover, Otsego, Saint Michael, and the Wright County portion of Dayton
