Student Records(FERPA)The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (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 U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents and guardians certain rights with respect to their children’s education records. These rights transfer to the student, or former student, who has reached the age of 18 or is attending any school beyond high school.

Students and former students to whom the rights have transferred are called eligible students. The Board of Education conforms in all respects to the requirements of Federal and State law regarding gathering, maintaining and allowing access to student records. The laws are as follows: It is the intent and practice of the School District to publish, post or distribute a student’s name and/or photograph or other information related only to student achievement (e.g. academic/athletic recognition or award received).Annually, South Brunswick School District provides parents or guardians with the opportunity to rescind this permission through the issuance of Media and Web Non-Consent forms. Parents or guardians who do not grant the District permission to release “directory” type information, as it relates to student achievement, must sign and return the necessary paperwork to the school main office by the date indicated on the form. Permission may be rescinded at any time during the school year by contacting the school directly.

The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the school to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA are: Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington, DC 20202-4605.
