Shaun Boyd reports that State Rep. Alec Garnett and State Rep. Paul Lundeen have teamed up on a bipartisan student privacy bill that

would define “what is the data that’s being collected, who can see it, what can they do with it, who can they share it with and under what circumstances can it be shared, and how we protect it.


The bill would specifically prohibit companies from creating profiles, selling data or using it to target advertising. School districts would also be required to post which digital companies’ apps they are using in classrooms.

Read more on CBS.

The bill is HB16-1423, the “STUDENT DATA TRANSPARENCY AND SECURITY ACT.” I’ve only skimmed it so far, but it does appear to have some strong provisions.
