In the first of its kind, the Parent Coalition for Student Privacy and the Network for Public Education released a report card that grades all fifty states on their student privacy laws, focusing on 99 laws passed since 2013 in 39 states plus the District of Columbia.

The State Student Privacy Report Card awards points to every state in each of the following five categories, aligned with the core principles put forward by the Parent Coalition for Student Privacy:Transparency, Parental and Student Rights; Limitations on Commercial Use of Data; Data Security Requirements; and Oversight, Enforcement, and Penalties for Violations.

Two more categories were added: Parties Covered and Regulated and Other, a catch-all for provisions that did not fit into any of the above categories, such as prohibiting school employees from receiving compensation for recommending the use of specific education technology products and services.
