The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. WIth few exceptions, FERPA prohibits schools from disclosing personally identifiable information contained in student education records without prior written parent/guardian consent to anyone other than school officials with legitimate educational interest except for directory information. “Directory information,” which is defined as set forth below, may be released to requestors in limited circumstances by Urban Discovery Schools without additional notice to families unless the parent/guardian timely “opt out” of such disclosures in writing.
State and federal law allows directory information to be disclosed to any requestors, except those who intend to use the information for commercial purposes. Urban Discovery Schools’s policy is not to release directory information to requestors unless Urban Discovery Schools deems it to be in the interests of our students and families. If parents/guardians do not want Urban Discovery Schools to disclose their contact and other directory information from their child’s records to such persons or entities without their prior written consent, parents/guardians must notify Urban Discovery Schools in writing prior to the beginning of each school year.
Directory information includes the following:
- Students names;
- Parents’/guardians’ names;
- Electronic mail address;
- Phone number;
- Dates of attendance;
- Participation in officially recognized activities and sports;
- Weight and height of members of athletic teams;
- Degrees, honors, and awards received; and
- The most recent educational agency or institution attended
- Student ID number, user ID, or other unique personal identifier used to communicate in electronic systems or displayed on a student ID badge, but only if the identifier cannot be used to gain access to education records except when used in conjunction with one or more factors that authenticate the user’s identify, such as a PIN, password, or other factor known or possessed only by the authorized user.
