Make plans to attend a seminar to provide faculty and staff with an overview regarding the obligations imposed by FERPA relative to the proper use and protection of student records.
Do you wonder what information you can give parents about a student’s educational record? Do you know what “Directory Information” is? Do you know how to tell if a student’s record has a “Confidentiality” flag and how to respond to a request for information on that student? Do you know what information you can share in a recommendation for a student and still be in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)? Do you know about IUP’s electronic permission form for sharing information with identified third parties? Are you aware of recent updates to FERPA which were designed to keep our campuses, students, faculty, and staff safe?
These questions and more will be addressed in a seminar by Jeannie Broskey, associate registrar for Student Records.
The seminar will provide faculty and staff with an overview regarding the obligations imposed by FERPA relative relative to the proper use and protection of student records. Time will be reserved at the end of the discussion for questions specific to your issues and concerns.
Jeannie has nearly 20 years of experience in confidentiality matters relating to student records, and she looks forward to seeing you.
