Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students over 18 years of age (eligible student) certain rights with respect to the student’s educational record. These rights are:
The right to inspect and review the student’s educational records within 45 days of the day the school receives a written request for access.
The right to request the amendment of the student’s educational record that the parent or eligible student believes is inaccurate.
The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s educational records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. Exceptions to consent include: disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests and disclosure to officials of another school district in which the student seeks or intends to enroll.
The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the school district to comply with the requirements of FERPA.
