Training Overview

Do your student privacy practices meet 2022-23 FERPA requirements?

As the 2022-23 school year gets underway, you must ensure that your school adheres to the current, far-reaching requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Students, parents, and staff members express interest in seeing protected grades, discipline histories, security risks, investigation reports, and other documents. You need to be careful to release only the information you are legally obligated to provide without revealing confidential details protected by law.

Your institution must have policies and notices in place. Students have the right to review their personally identifiable information. In specific scenarios, schools can disclose information without the student’s consent to parents, the media, or members of the public.
