NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
This rule is authorized by Utah Constitution Article X, Section 3, which vests general control and supervision over public education in the Utah State Board of Education (Board); Subsection 53E-3-401(4), which allows the Board to make rules to execute the Board's duties and responsibilities under the Utah Constitution and state law; Subsection 53E-9-302(1), which directs that the Board may make rules to establish student data protection standards for public education employees, student aides, and volunteers; and Subsection 53G-11-511(4), which directs that the Board may make rules to ensure the privacy and protection of individual evaluation data.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No written comments were received.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
This rule continues to be necessary because it provides for appropriate review and disclosure of student performance data on state administered assessments as required by law; provides for adequate and appropriate review of student performance data on state administered assessments to professional education staff and parents of students; ensures the privacy of student performance data and personally identifiable student data, as directed by law; provides an online education survey conducted with public funds for Board review and approval; and provides for appropriate protection and maintenance of educator licensing data. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
