FERPA and Electronic Education Records: A Compliance Guide for Proper Management

Price: $27.45


The transition to the Digital Age has drastically changed the way your district approaches student privacy.

In this easy-to-reference compliance guide, you and your staff learn solutions to the most common FERPA-related challenges districts face when maintaining education records electronically – and what the latest revisions to the law say about safeguarding student information.

Three focused sections give you legally sound guidance to protect student privacy and prevent inadvertent disclosures:

  • Part I clarifies which electronic records are protected as "education records" under the newly amended FERPA regulations, including key definitions and a close look at how to authenticate personally identifiable electronic information such as e-mails and videotape.
  • Part II familiarizes you with the exceptions to FERPA's prohibition on disclosing education records without parental consent and delves deeper into "de-identified" records and electronic requests for access.
  • Part III gives you specific guidelines to safeguard electronic records with a review of common problems and how to address them, as well as how the IDEA comes into play.

Plus, up-to-date full text of relevant FERPA and IDEA regulations, selected letters from the Family Policy Compliance Office, and Department of Education recommendations for additional reference.
