Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
On the federal FERPA website, the following language specifically refers to students under 18 years of age: “If a student is attending a postsecondary institution – at any age – the rights under FERPA have transferred to the student. However, in a situation where a student is enrolled in both a high school and a postsecondary institution, the two schools may exchange information on that student. If the student is under 18, the parents still retain the rights under FERPA at the high school and may inspect and review any records sent by the postsecondary institution to the high school.” For more information, click here.
