Employees of school entities work with information and documents protected by FERPA day in and day out. They need to understand what information is protected by FERPA; what that means in terms of who can and cannot see this information; and what school employees should do to ensure they are complying with FERPA. FERPA not only provides limits on who can and cannot see the information it protects, but also provides a number of exceptions to these limits. Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions about the limits that FERPA creates and it can cause school entities and employees to land in legal trouble. Ensuring that employees have a clear understanding of when FERPA applies, its exceptions, and what that means can reduce this risk to school entities and its employees.
Join expert speaker Timothy E. Gilsbach, Esq. in this webinar as he reviews what records FERPA applies to and what school employees must do in order to ensure they comply with the provisions of FERPA; which limits who this information can be shared with. In addition, the program will review in detail under what circumstances this information can be provided to other school employees and those outside of the school setting, and when parental consent is required for doing so. Lastly, the program will provide strategies on how individual school employees can ensure they are sharing and protecting information in a manner that is FERPA compliant and the possible risks associated with non compliance.
