This new law safeguards against student tracking and profiling, limits data collection by school-contracted apps and websites, and requires third parties to redact students' identifying information when seeking to improve a site or product. It also includes a parental notification provision, which ensures that parents know when schools are providing their children's information to third parties or when their children's data may have been breached. H.B. 5469 passed the House of Representatives 145-0 and the Senate 36-0.
