Student Data Privacy: Legally-Defensible Best Practices

In this age of technology and electronic data sharing, student confidentiality and records privacy have become paramount concerns for parents, educators, and lawmakers. The convenience of electronic data storage and transfer has increased the national significance of this issue. This training session is designed to provide a comprehensive look at the existing laws designed to protect student privacy. We will discuss the legal protections afforded to students under the law and provide practical tools that schools can use to evaluate and bolster their own student data privacy protections.

Please join Erin Gilsbach, attorney at law, for an in-depth and thoughtful analysis of such issues as retention and dissemination of student medical records, sharing of student records with contractors and 3rd parties, permissions and limitations on sharing information with school volunteers, and much more. She brings attention and clarity to this important issue by highlighting statutory requirements, looking at case law and written opinions from the Federal Department of Education, and recounting experiences in her own practice with her own clients. She will provide best practice tips that schools can use to evaluate their own data retention and dissemination practices as well as tools for instituting legally-defensible data privacy practices.
