Description

Public elementary and secondary schools; student identification numbers. Prohibits the Department of Education and each local school board from requiring any student enrolled in a public elementary or secondary school or his parent to provide the student's federal social security number. The bill requires the Department to instead develop a system of unique student identification numbers and requires each local school board to assign such a number to each student enrolled in a public elementary or secondary school. Under current law, every student is required to present a federal social security number within 90 days of his enrollment; if a student is ineligible to obtain a social security number or his parent is unwilling to present a social security number, the superintendent may assign another identifying number or waive the requirement. Amends § 22.1-260, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »

Yes, please. It's not like schools want to be liable for exposing students social security numbers, but this is surely pretty low on the priority list. A statewide prohibition might lead the state school board to get creative and come up with their own numbering unique identifier for students.
