Student Privacy

Parents and those interested in a student’s educational record will need to follow FERPA guidelines. FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is a federal privacy law that requires schools, with certain exceptions, to obtain written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information. When a student reaches 18 years of age OR attends a postsecondary institution, he or she becomes an “eligible student” and all privacy rights under FERPA transfer from the parent to the student.
