Dear PS 107 Families.
The DOE takes the confidentiality of information about students very seriously. There are several federal and state laws, such as the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and New York State Education Law 2-d, and local regulations, such as Chancellor’s Regulation A-820, that protect students’ “personally identifiable information” (PII). These laws also place responsibilities on the DOE and outside parties that are given access to students’ PII, including the requirement for the DOE and schools to provide families with the following annual notices:
- Annual FERPA Notification (scroll to the bottom of the page for parent letter and translations); and
- Parent Bill of Rights for Data Privacy and Security.
I have attached the individual letters available in English and Spanish to this message.
