Education Law 2-D

New York State Education Law 2-d gives you the right to information about how Rensselaer CSD safeguards student and employee data.

If at any time we learn that student and/or teacher/principal data has been compromised, parents and guardians will be notified, and the data breach will be reported to the New York State Education Department.

A breach is defined as the unauthorized acquisition, access, use, or disclosure of student personally identifiable information (PII) and/or teacher or principal PII by or to a person not authorized to acquire, access, use, or receive the student and/or teacher or principal PII.

Individuals who have concerns or wish to file a complaint about a possible breach or improper disclosure of data may do so using the form below.
