Document Number: 11307A Stoplight for Student Data Use - Student information can be a boon to teachers, parents and policymakers, but not everybody gets access, according to this handy little guide to FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. Who can? Parents of children younger than 18, teachers to meet students' educational needs, another school if the student intends to enroll, among others. Who can't? Employers without student consent, anyone who wants the records for marketing, anyone who wants to buy information. The guide should not be considered a substitute for legal counsel.
