To Share Or Not To Share? FERPA Compliance Training For Front Line Staff
Is it okay to release a transcript to a military recruiter when a student owes money? Are we bound to release a transcript to a government employee? What do we do when someone calls and says there is an emergency and they cannot find a student? Can we help them? These questions represent some of the major challenges that arise for front line staff, both in person and on the phone, as they attempt to interpret and act in compliance with FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
This webinar is designed to train front line staff and those responsible for their FERPA compliance on the most common FERPA challenges that can arise on a daily basis. Using sample scenarios to highlight common questions that arise, participants will review the FERPA concepts and regulations presented. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask their own specific questions and will leave with sample scenarios and information on key concepts specific to front line staff. This program is suitable for both front line service providers and those responsible for training front line staff on FERPA.
