FERPA Message for Users and Administrators

In some implementations of this system: educational records are kept to facilitate the educational development of students. Authorized users may also keep informal records relating to their functional responsibilities with individual students. A federal law, the Family Educational Rights And Privacy Act of 1974 (also known as FERPA, and the Buckley Amendment) as amended, affords students certain rights concerning their student educational records. Students have the right to have some control over the disclosure of information from the records. Educational institutions have the responsibility to prevent improper disclosure of personally identifiable information from the records. WHEN IN DOUBT, err on the side of caution and do not release student educational information. Contact your center director, administrative office, or lawyer for further guidance.
