Active support of an idea or cause etc.; especially the act of pleading or arguing for something!

Here is the link to changes being made by the State School Board  The following are the ones that are of the great est concern, especially those in yellow highlights. http://schools.utah.gov/board/Meetings/Agenda/docs/Tab4C.aspx

The definition below of student information opens up a huge can  of worms or in legal terms a loophole.

34 G. “Student information” means materials, information,

1

35 records and knowledge that an LEA possesses or maintains, or

36 both, about individual students. Student information is

37 broader than student records and may include information or

38 knowledge that school employees possess or learn in the course

39 of their duties.

40 [D]G. “Student record” means a record in any form,

41 including handwriting, print, computer media, video or audio

42 tape, film, microfilm, and microfiche, that is directly

43 related to a student and maintained by an educational agency

44 or institution or by a party acting for an agency or

45 institution. Student records shall be maintained by LEAs

46 consistent with 20 U.S.C. Section 1232g.

We are getting back emails from the State School Board saying that they had to do this because of legislation.  We need to let Kour legislators know that this legislation passed is now affecting privacy.

Specifically, Utah Futures bill which collects and shares data all over the place.  Here is the link to that bill.  Line 79 includes behavior      http://le.utah.gov/~2012/bills/static/SB0290.html.  There are other bills as well that call for the sharing of data.
