Protecting the Privacy and Security of Student Records
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that offers parents particular rights when it comes to protecting the privacy of their children’s education records. This data can consist of report cards, transcripts, disciplinary records, contact information and class schedules. In order to protect the sensitive records of our children the FERPA law was implemented to create a standard level of data security and privacy when dealing with student data.
Throughout CCSI’s FERPA assessment we’ll focus on how to comply with the regulation and validate student records are being properly governed with the federal guidelines in place for security and privacy. During this assessment we’ll take the following approach to evaluate your level of preparedness to the FERPA guidelines.
