For Paraprofessionals:  FERPA, Student Privacy and Education Records

FERPA - Paraprofessionals


A DirectSTEP® eLearning course from LRP

This course examines the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), focusing on the rule requiring school staff, including paraprofessionals, to obtain prior written parental consent before sharing education records with third parties. This course will cover who has rights under FERPA, the definition of education records, the parental consent rule, and how these confidentiality requirements affect paraprofessionals. This course will also review the exceptions to the "parental consent" rule to explain the circumstances in which paraprofessionals may share student information without explicit parent authorization.
