States Enact New Student Data Privacy Laws

So far this year, we’ve seen 94 student data privacy bills in 31 states (see our further analysis here). With 34 state legislatures still in session, we anticipate that several more bills will be signed into law in the coming months. While the stream of state legislation has certainly slowed compared to 2014 and 2015, we’re encouraged to see states building on their previous efforts—and those of their peers—to be thoughtful about protecting student privacy while still allowing for the use of data to support student learning.
