FERPA Responsibilities

Published August 2019

Federal law requires that school districts annually send to parents a notice of rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and 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 U.S. Department of Education provides model notices at the links below. Questions about FERPA or the PPRA should be direct to the Family Policy Compliance Office of the U.S. Department of Education at 202-260-3887 or FERPA@ED.Gov.
