NEW YORK (AP) - New York is the only state still fully on board with a technology company's plan to create statewide databases for every public school student's grades, tests scores and attendance records.

Concerns from parents about who will have access to the information, how long it will be held and whether it will be used for marketing purposes have stalled the momentum of a startup that promised to bring efficiency and cost savings to school record-keeping.

Atlanta data-storage company inBloom drew early interest from several states, but nearly all have pulled back.

New York's Education Department is going forward with plans to send student information to inBloom sometime after Jan. 1. A group of New York City parents sued this month to block the release of that data.
