With the increase in online learning and the electronic sharing of information, new challenges are faced by educational entities in ensuring that they continue to comply with the legal obligations of FERPA. Many educational entities have now moved partly, if not entirely, online in terms of teaching and need to understand what is required to be done in order to comply with student privacy rights under FERPA in this new environment. In addition, as more and more educational entities move to electronic storage and sharing of student information, they need to be equipped to ensure compliance with FERPA in order to avoid the possibility of timely audits or costly withholding of federal funds.
This session with expert speakers Erin D. Gilsbach, Esq. & Timothy E. Gilsbach, Esq. will detail the applicable laws on this issue and provide the tools school entities need for complying with FERPA in the electronic or digital age.
You will gain a comprehensive understanding of FERPA and what is required to comply with the same in the context of online learning. In addition, the session will give practical advice on the procedures needed to ensure compliance with FERPA when storing and sharing student records and information electronically.
