Student Privacy and Data Sharing Agreements: Act 837 and Act 677
The legislature passed legislation in 2015, Act 837, which provides for limitations and prohibitions on the collection and sharing of student information. Additionally, the legislature passed Act 677, which requires that the Louisiana Department of Education and all LEAs make available information about the transfer of students’ personally identifiable information (PII). Information may be shared with vendors who provide services necessary for the operations of our school.
For more information, see the Orleans Parish School Board’s data sharing agreements and the Louisiana Department of Education’s data sharing agreements.
