FERPA is a Federal law designed to protect the privacy of a student’s education records. The law applies to all schools which receive funds under an applicable program of the United States Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children’s education records at the elementary and secondary school levels. These rights transfer to the student, or former student, who has reached the age of 18 or is attending any school beyond the high school level. Students and former students to whom the rights have transferred are called eligible students. In essence, eligible students determine who has access to their educational record. EDS is in full compliance with FERPA, and expects that students and families will also comply with the guidelines and policies of this law.
