FERPA and PPRA Notices

The Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA) requires local education agencies (LEAs) receiving funds under any program funded by the U.S. Department of Education to protect certain rights of parents and students. Federal law requires that school districts annually send to parents a notice of rights under the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA).  The law does not state when the notices are to be sent to parents, but at the beginning of the school year makes the most sense.  The department has provided a resource document related to PPRA and the U.S. Department of Education provides model notices at the links below:
