House Bill 125: Creates an Alabama Longitudinal Data System
Sponsors:
Representative Collins
Summary:

This bill creates the “Alabama Longitudinal Data System” -- a statewide data system created to match student data from early learning through college and the workforce. The type of information to be tracked would include: student performance, remediation and retention, credential attainment, demographic data, enrollment, employment status, wage information, geographic location of employment, and employer information. The goal would be to link student performance data with workforce data. HSLDA is concerned about the privacy of the information collected and the threat to home school student data privacy.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

Died.
