Protecting Student Information

Personally Identifiable Information - Transmitting Student Information Electronically

Protecting Student Information is critically important...and it is OUR responsibility! 
Did you know?

• that all teachers and staff must comply with the Federal FERPA law? 

• that whenever a student’s name and state ID number is combined in an email that is sent to another teacher or to the principal you are violating FERPA? 
     
• that FERPA does not allow you to post a student list with student names and ID numbers publicly...like on a bulletin board or outside your door? 

 Do you know? 

• what FERPA is and why school employees are legally and ethically obligated to safeguard the confidentiality of any private information they access while performing official duties?

Check out the guide for more information on what you can do to keep your students' information safe.
