Bill seeks to prevent sale of student data

Associated Press

FRANKFORT - A Kentucky Senate committee passed a bill Thursday aimed at preventing the sale of student digital data by technology companies.

The measure approved by the Senate Education Committee would strengthen privacy protections for students using certain technology resources at school, said Sen. Jimmy Higdon, R-Lebanon.

The bill also would require school districts to make available to the public a list of all third-party and privately contracted Web-based services used in the district. Schools would have to notify parents of the types of student information transferred to third-party service providers.

Higdon said the protections in the bill are similar to laws enacted in Kentucky to protect government data. The bill would also provide for agency audits of school data collection.

The bill passed unanimously. It goes to the full Senate for consideration.
