Parents Bill of Rights

Parents’ Bill of Rights

Romulus Central School District utilizes current technology, including web-based programs and the electronic storage, retrieval, and analysis of students’ education in order to improve academic achievement, empower teachers, students and parents with information, and increase the District’s efficiency making data-driven decisions in response to identifiable educational needs.  

The Romulus Central School District is committed to protecting the privacy and security of student data and teacher and principal data.  The Parents’ Bill of Rights seeks to ensure that parents have information about how the District stores, retrieves, and uses information about students, and to meet all the legal requirements for maintaining privacy and security of protected student data and protected principal and teacher data, including Section 2-D of the New York State Education Law (Part 121).

1) A student’s personally identifiable information cannot be sold or released for any commercial purposes.

2) Parents have the right to inspect and review the complete contents of their child’s education record.

3) State and federal laws protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable information, and safeguards associated with industry standards and best practices, including but not limited to encryption, firewalls, and password protection, must be in place when data is stored or transferred.

4) A complete list of all student data elements collected by New York State is available for public review at the following website http://www.nysed.gov/student-data-privacy/student-data-inventory or by writing to the Office of Information and Reporting Services, New York State Education Department, Room 865 EBA, 89 WashingtonAvenue, Albany, New York 12234.

5) Parents, eligible students (students who are at least 18 years of age or attending a postsecondary institution at any age), principals, teachers, and employees of an educational agency may file a complaint about a possible breach or improper disclosure of student data and/or protected teacher or principal data.
