Data Privacy & Security
The Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District is committed to promoting sound information practices and policies that will strengthen data privacy and security in our school district, empower parents with information, and advance efficient and effective school operations.
Parent's Bill of Rights
The purpose of the Parents’ Bill of Rights is to inform parents (which also includes legal guardians or persons in parental relation to a student, but generally not the parents of a student who is age eighteen or over) of the legal requirements regarding privacy, security and use of student data. In addition to the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Education Law §2-d provides important protections for student data, and remedies for breaches of the responsibility to maintain the security and confidentiality of such data.
