(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 of Education.

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.
