On sharing student information

Perda: obtain written permission from parents prior to sharing information about students
practice is to use a letter
this is the practice when this falls outside those who already have consent to see and use student data
Those are:
  • school officials with legitimate educational interest
  • other schools to which a student is transferring
  • specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes
  • appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student
  • organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school
  • accrediting organizations
  • to comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena
  • appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies
  • state and local authorities within the juvenile justice system
MOTION: request that administration come back with opt out language on parents opting out on student information sharing with outside vendors after consultation with legal that's mine
O'Connell suggests to discuss with MASC
Colorio: unclear on if we know what was allowed under change in FERPA
Novick: suggest that we add to previous item on Friday letter
