FERPA Notification

  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all programs that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. At your initial visit, your provider will review these rights with you and ask you to sign that you understand the rights as presented. Below is a copy of the form that contains the information discussed at the initial visit. More detailed information on FERPA can be found at http://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/index.html
