FERPA – The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is a video produced by the Lebanon Community School Corporation and the Central Indiana Educational Service Center (CIESC) for the purpose of informing staff and parents about this federal law.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level.
