State Assembly passes bill that will keep student data secure

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Assembly has passed a bill designed to keep student data secure.

The proposal came after concerns were raised during legislative hearings discussing academic standards about student data getting funneled to the federal government. 

The bill was originally proposed by Representative Don Pridemore (R-Hartford).

The bill would require the state Department of Public Instruction to post online the data points it collects on students. It would also require a plan to keep students' data secure.

The Assembly approved the proposal Thursday and it will now move on to the state Senate.
