Technology Plan

The Schuylerville Central School District K-12 educational program will prepare students to be technologically literate individuals. With a focus on lifelong learning, our students will be able to make informed decisions about the role of technology in their lives. Students should have the opportunity to develop technology skills that support learning, personal productivity, and decision making. While we know that the day-to-day work of great teaching and learning in every classroom is what gets results for all students, innovative technology use is also crucial for the best possible instruction. Crafted through research and best practice review, with input from key stakeholders and technology experts, our vision for technology in the district is not to simply have students consume it, but to use it to create, collaborate, communicate globally, and to spread positivity that will not only make our students ready for today, but also their futures.

Parents, legal guardians, eligible students (students who are at least 18 years of age or attending a post-secondary institution at any age), principals, teachers, and employees of an educational agency may file a complaint about a possible data breach or improper disclosure of student data and/or protected teacher or principal data. 

  1. To submit a complaint, please download & complete the Schuylerville CSD Unauthorized Data Disclosure/Data Breach Form. Paper forms are also available in the schools’ main office. Completed forms may be submitted by email to the Data Protection Officer Jason Mehan
    Director of Technology & Computer Integration:
    (518) 695-3255, ext. 2208  
    or submitted at the district office either in person or by mail:

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

FERPA is the foundational federal law on the privacy of students’ educational records. FERPA safeguards student privacy by limiting who may access student records, specifying for what purpose they may access those records, and detailing what rules they have to follow when accessing the data.

Annual FERPA Notice

FERPA affords parents and students over 18 years of age (eligible students) certain rights with respect to the student’s education records. These rights are:

  • The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the school receives a request for access;
  • The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the parent or eligible student believes is inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA. Parents or eligible students should submit to the building principal a written request that identifies the record(s) they wish to inspect. The principal will make arrangements for access and notify the parent or eligible student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. Parents or eligible students who wish to ask the school to amend a record should write the building principal, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it should be changed. If the school decides not to amend the record as requested by the parent or eligible student, the school will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and advise them of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing.
  • The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information in the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his/her professional responsibility.
  • The right to file a complaint with the US Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the school district to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is:

Family Policy Compliance Office
US Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20202-5920.
