  1. Montana citizens are seeing the light and we’re waking more up everyday! We’ve testified at the interim meeting of the state Education and Local Government committee and will be doing the same at next month’s state Board of Education meeting. Our legislature meets every other year, so we can’t introduce bills till next January. Until them we’ll be educating senators and representatives at every chance we get!

  2. Illinois State Senator William Delgado (D-Chicago, Elmwood Park) has introduced bill SB 3092. The bill amends the P-20 Longitudinal Education Data System Act to further protect the privacy of identifiable student data.

  3. There is HB4558 in Illinois that is up for second reading.Amends the Illinois School Student Records Act. Adds as a condition that the parent or eligible student (defined as a student who has reached 18 years of age) provide prior, specific, dated, written consent designating the person to whom the records may be released and, at the time any such consent is requested or obtained, the parent or eligible student is first advised in writing of the specific purpose of the release, transfer, disclosure, or dissemination and has the right to inspect and copy such records, to challenge their contents, and to limit any such consent to designated records or designated portions of the information contained in the records. Provides that a separate, prior, specific, dated, written consent shall be required from the parent or eligible student for each release, transfer, disclosure, or dissemination of school student records or information.
