Ed Law 2-d, progress in data privacy and security
As of January 29th, 2020 Part 121 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education
went into effect implementing New York State Education Law 2-d
Ed Law 2-d provides guidance to educational agencies and their third-party contractors on ways to strengthen data privacy and security to protect student data and annual professional performance review data for teachers and principals.
Over the coming weeks and months, we will be adding details and resources to this page to help parents, students, and teachers understand Ed Law 2-d, the actions the district is taking to strengthen data privacy and security, as well as improved transparency of our who third-party contractors are and how they are using and securing student and staff data.

Open Education Resource (OER) Content - CK-12
- Open Education Resource (OER) textbooks are available now in the iBookstore. CK-12 Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to reduce the cost of textbook materials for the K-12 market both in the U.S. and worldwide. Using an open-content, web-based collaborative model called the "FlexBook," CK-12 intends to pioneer the generation and distribution of high quality educational content that will serve both as core text as well as provide an adaptive environment for learning.
iPads have exploded throughout schools and classrooms. Their flexibility, versatility, and mobility make them a phenomenal learning tool. As teachers seek ways to integrate these devices, we recommend focusing on specific learning goals that promote critical-thinking, creativity, collaboration, and the creation of student-centric learning environments.
