FERPA

The LEA (Bethany) may disclose personally identifiable information from a student's education record to other school officials, including teachers, within the LEA; to officials of another school system or postsecondary education institution where the student seeks or intends to enroll; to State and local educational authorities; to accrediting and monitoring personnel; and to the Comptroller General of the United States or the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education and others as further defined by the FERPA.

The LEA may disclose personally identifiable information from a record to appropriate parties in connection with an emergency if knowledge of the information is necessary to protect the health or safety of the student or other individuals. Such disclosure shall be strictly constructed in accordance with FERPA.

Any other disclosure will require written consent from the parent or eligible student according to FERPA regulations.

In circumstances where such consent is not granted and the LEA determines that the information may be necessary in order to provide FAPE to a child disability, due process hearing provisions under IDEA are available.

A judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena to disclose information would override a parent's refusal to provide consent under this section. However, the LEA must make a reasonable effort to notify the parents or eligible student, in advance of compliance with an order or subpoena for disclosure of information.

According to State statues, is a misdemeanor for any teacher to reveal any information concerning a child obtained by that teacher in the capacity as teacher except as may be required in the performance of contractual duties. This information may be furnished to the parent or guardian of their child upon request.
