FERPA – Are You Doing Enough?

February 20, 2019 at 1:00 pm EST

By: Steven A. Spillan, Esq.

Course Description: At a time when so-called “data breaches” seem to happen across multiple industries with some regularity, federal education program administrators need to take extra care to protect personally identifiable information (PII) in student’s education records.  As curriculum-based technology rises in use among public schools, taking precautions to secure student data has never been more difficult.  This session will discuss the requirements under the Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the disclosure requirements, and guidance on how to utilize modern technology in education without sacrificing student privacy.
