Rights Under FERPA and ppra

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students who are 18 years of age or older ("eligible students") certain rights with respect to the student's  education records.  These rights are:

  1. The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days after the day Elbert School District #200 receives a request for access.  Parents or eligible students who wish to inspect their child's or their education records should submit to the school superintendent or principal, a written request that identifies the records they wish to inspect.  The school official will make arrangements for access and notify the parent or eligible student of the time and place where the records may be inspected.
  2. The right to request the amendment of the student's education records that the parent or eligible student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student's privacy rights under FERPA.  Parents or eligible students who wish to ask Elbert School District #200 to amend their child's or their education record should write the school superintendent or principal and clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it should be changed.  If the school decides not to amend the record as requested by the parent or eligible student, the school will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment.  Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing.
  3. The right to provide written consent before the school discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.  One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests.  Upon request, the school discloses education records without consent to officials of another school or school district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, or is already enrolled if the disclosure is for the purpose of the student's enrollment or transfer.
  4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by Elbert School District #200 to comply with the requirements of FERPA.  The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is:    Family Policy Compliance Office                                                             US. Department of Education                                                                 400 Maryland Avenue, SW                                                                 Washington DC  20202-8520                             Additional information regarding FERPA and PPRA may be found on the U.S. Department of Education's FERPA page and the Family Compliance Office's PPRA page.


data privacy

"Recent advances in technology and telecommunications have dramatically changed the landscape of education in the United States. Gone are the days when textbooks, photocopies, and filmstrips supplied the entirety of educational content to a classroom full of students. Today’s classrooms increasingly employ on-demand delivery of personalized content, virtual forums for interacting with other students and teachers, and a wealth of other interactive technologies that help foster and enhance the learning process. Online forums help teachers share lesson plans; social media help students collaborate across classrooms; and web-based applications assist teachers in customizing the learning experience for each student to achieve greater learning outcomes"  US Department of Education Protecting Student Privacy
