New York 2-d Law Compliance

In the spirit of complying with its obligations under the law and continuing to provide software programs, online applications, and data services, West Irondequoit Central School District (WICSD) has entered into contracts with certain third-party contractors.  Pursuant to such agreements, third-party contractors may have access to student data and staff data as defined by law.

For each contract WICSD enters into with a provider, and where the third-party contractor receives student or staff personally identifiable data, the following information will be included:
  • the intent for which the student data or staff data will be used
  • a published agreement that the third-party contractor will ensure that the subcontractors, persons or entities that the third-party contractor will share the student or staff data with, if any, will abide by data protection and security requirements
  • the disposal of data that contains personally identifiable items
  • a process for parents, students, staff who wish to challenge the accuracy of the student data or staff data that is collected
Resources are available on this site that will assist in understanding your rights under NYS Ed Law 2-d and §121 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education which detail the implementation of NYS Ed Law 2-d.  An inventory of software that contains personally identifiable information (PII) and accompanying contracts is available at the link below.  WICSD is responsible for obtaining those contracts for district-purchased software, while Monroe 1 BOCES obtains contracts for software and services purchased through the BOCES organization.
