FERPA Policies or the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act: FERPA is a federal law designed to protect the confidentiality of student records and the school district must comply with this law, as well as a similar state law. When the school administrator contacts a parent about the school district’s response to a disciplinary incident, he/she may discuss information about an investigation and corrective action taken, but only to the extent that it may be done without disclosing information about any other students. (FERPA) FERPA, 20 U.S.C. § 1232g as implemented in 34 C.F.R. Part 99, requires annual notification to parents or eligible students of their rights under the Act. Such notice must include that parents or eligible students have the right to: a. Inspect and review the student’s records, b. Seek amendment of the student’s education record that the parent or eligible student believes is inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights, c. Consent to disclosure of personally identifiable student information, except as provided in 34 C.F.R. § 99.31, and d. File a complaint with the United States Department of Education under 34 C.F.R. §§ 99.63 and 99.64 if they believe the educational agency or institution has failed to comply with the Act. Additionally, the annual notice must include: e. The procedure for exercising the right to inspect and review education records, f. The procedure for requesting amendment of the records under 34 C.F.R. § 99.20, and g. If the educational agency or institution has a policy of disclosing records under 34 C.F.R. § 99.31(a)(1), a specification of criteria for determining who constitutes a school official and what constitutes a legitimate educational interest.
