record will be for the previous day and back. The report card grades
will be viewable after record cards have been published. This web site

Parents' Bill of Rights for Student Data Privacy and Security
Parent's Bill of Rights for Data Privacy and Security
Camden Central School District seeks to use the current technology,
including electronic storage, retrieval, and analysis of information
about students' education experience in the district, to enhance the
opportunities for learning and to increase the efficiency of our
district and school operations.

maintaining the privacy and security of protected student data and
protected principal and teacher data, including Section 2-d of the New

Supplemental Information About Third Party Contracts
order to meet 21st Century expectations for effective education and
efficient operation, the District utilizes several products and services
that involve third party contractors receiving access to student data,
or principal or teacher data, protected by Section 2-d of the Education
Law. The District recognizes that students, parents, and the school
community have a legitimate interest in understanding which of the
District's vendors receive that data, for what purpose, and under what
conditions. The District has undertaken the task of compiling that
information, and of insuring that each new contract adequately describes
(1) the exclusive purposes for which the data will be used, (2) how the
contractor will ensure that any subcontractors it uses will abide by
data protection and security requirements, (3) when the contract expires
and what happens to the data at that time, (4) if and how an affected
party can challenge the accuracy of the data is collected, (5) where the
data will be stored, and (6) the security protections taken to ensure
the data will be protected, including whether the data will be
Education Law Section 2-d and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Education Law Section 2-d: When
student data is exchanged between school district, or between school
district and a BOCES, that exchange takes place between two "educational
agencies." Also, the MORIC staff who access the data are employed by an
"educational agency" (Madison-Oneida BOCES). Therefore, no "third party
contractor" is involved, and Section 2-d is not applicable.
general rule under FERPA is that a school district or BOCES may not
disclose "personally identifiable information" (PII) from a student's
education record without prior consent of the student's family. However,
there are two exceptions built into FERPA that enable school districts
to give each other, and MORIC staff, access to student education records
if the appropriate language has been included in the school district's annual FERPA notification.
