UPDATE: CDE Lawsuit Affects Release of Student Data
Message #2 (March 10, 2016) UPDATE Morgan Hill vs. CDE Lawsuit
The judge said the plaintiffs will be able to submit queries to CDE regarding data research, but CDE will not have to provide personal data such as names, Social Security numbers or other concerning and recognizable student information. The judge's decision was supported by all parties.
At the related hearing, Judge Mueller noted she has received "voluminous" numbers of objection forms from parents and students concerned about the possible release of personal information. While the forms are not opt-out forms and will not be considered by the court as such, she emphasized that the objection forms reinforced the need to protect students’ information. Forms received will be included in the court's official documentation.
To obtain the Objection to Disclosure Form please go to: http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/di/ws/documents/form2016jan26.pdf. Note that the deadline to submit an objection to the court is April 1, 2016.
