E-mails have made things much more streamlined today, even in the area of education where students and parents communicate with school staff via e-mails for various reasons at the front. Under Federal and State law, such e-mails may be considered educational records that a parent or student in entitled to see, and such records can be ordered to be produced in other litigation contexts. Thus, it is important to carefully draft e-mails which can otherwise lead to potential liability. Emails can also be used to carefully create a record of events and even limit/extinguish liability in certain cases.
This audio conference by Timothy E. Gilsbach, ESQ. will explain when e-mails are considered student records under federal law and why is it significant to educational entities. Going further, the presentation will outline when e-mails are supposed to be used in the educational context, when they shouldn’t be and how to effectively use them in the educational context.
