Data Privacy & Security

The Manchester-Shortsville Central School District is dedicated to enhancing data privacy and security within our educational community. We strive to implement robust information practices and policies that empower parents with comprehensive insights while promoting efficient and effective school operations.

Parent's Bill of Rights

The purpose of the Parents’ Bill of Rights is to inform parents (which also includes legal guardians or persons in parental relation to a student, but generally not the parents of a student who is age eighteen or over) of the legal requirements regarding privacy, security and use of student data. In addition to the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Education Law §2-d provides important protections for student data, and remedies for breaches of the responsibility to maintain the security and confidentiality of such data.
