Description Speaker(s)
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA): Does it make you cringe? Do these five letters instill fear and confusion? Do you spend too much time worrying that you might say or do the wrong thing?
It is clear that faculty must have an awareness of FERPA as part of their ongoing teaching duties. However, navigating through the maze of regulations and complex situations is challenging, especially for faculty that are trying hard to balance teaching with regulatory awareness.

This webinar will help teach faculty how to seamlessly walk through FERPA using several real-world experiences to build understanding and meaning. Participants will review the complex issues of compliance, limitations, and safe and effective communication with other departments when necessary. Participants will learn about the FERPA Dependent Exemption, the FERPA Emergency Exception, and how to deal with parents in a sensitive manner. The basic definition and language of the act will also be reviewed, along with best practices for reporting.

  • The Foundation of FERPA: What does it say? What does it mean?
  • The FERPA Dependent Exemption: Why are 90% of students not under FERPA?
  • The FERPA Emergency Exception: What it is and what does it mean?
