Big record-keeping changes are coming to schools across the state.

Under a new plan, public schools will be required to send student data, such as grades and attendance records, to a cloud-based data storage company sometime after the new year.

New York is the first state to make a full commitment to the program created by the Atlanta-based InBloom.

A number of states flirted with using the program, but withdrew.

The initiative has come under fire from parents, who fear that the data will not be secure and could be sold to marketers.

The New York State Department of Education says that the data will be accessible only to parents and educators via the internet.
