Student Data Privacy in West Virginia

In the National Association of State Boards of Education's February issue of "State Innovations," West Virginia was highlighted for its work in student data privacy. Over the years, West Virginia has passed various laws and regulations that both strengthen data privacy while allowing the potential to use data to assist student outcomes in the future. EIMAC CIO Network member Sterling Beane was quoted in the article saying, "In West Virginia, we take student data privacy seriously. I am happy that the West Virginia State Board of Education, the West Virginia legislature and the Department of Education have worked cooperatively to enact code, policy, and procedure that represent those core beliefs and values."
