New Law Expands Protection of Student Data Privacy
August 1, 2017 - by Carrie O'Brien

Effective August 9, Arizona has a new law requiring public schools to adopt policies that allow parents to opt their student out of the use of technology at school.

In addition, education technology companies operating in Arizona, including internet sites, software as a service (SAAS) or mobile applications, may not use student data for non-education purposes, including targeted advertising, except in furtherance of school purposes.

The new law also expands the types of information that is protected beyond the requirements of federal laws such as the Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the application of limitations on data generated by education technology companies.

Senate Bill 1314, as enacted, which created the new law is available here and the Arizona State Senate summary of the bill is available here.

For more information or questions on these new resources or other matters relating to education data privacy, please contact any of our education law attorneys listed below.
