(Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
of 1974) is a Federal law designed to protect the privacy
of a student's education records. The law applies to all schools which
receive funds under an applicable program from the U.S. Department
Generally, the school may release "directory information"
without permission of the student parent unless the parent has opted
to not release such information. The school must have written permission
from the parent or eligible student before releasing non-directory
information from a student's records.
See the Student Code of Conduct Handbook for the definition of "directory
information" and chapter 3.5 of the Policies and Procedures manual
and Section 1002.22, Florida Statutes (2007) for further information
on the privacy rights for students.
