    Family Education Rights and Privacy Act School Records

    In accordance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, written policies and procedures have been developed which describe the Fulton County School District’s requirements regarding the confidentiality of personally identifiable information. Stated in this notice is a summary of your rights under the act. These rights are passed on to the student at age eighteen. For the purpose of this notice, the student 18 years or older is the “eligible” student. Parents, guardians, and eligible students may review and inspect all education records relating to that student by making a request to the principal of the school where that student attends.

    The FCSD will presume that the parent has the authority to review and inspect records relating to their children unless the district has been advised in writing that the parent does not have the legal authority under applicable state law governing such matters as guardianship, separation, and divorce.

    Personally identifiable information is not released to another party unless there is written authorization from the parent or eligible student, or there is a “legitimate educational interest” as defined in the policies and procedures for confidentiality. A current list of employees’ names and positions who have access to personally identifiable information is on file in each school. The FCSD has described in its policies and procedures the conditions under which personally identifiable information is released to another person without written parental consent.

    “Directory information” is information contained in an educational record that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. This information may be released to news media, athletic organization, scholarship or college entrance committees, or official organizations whose need for data is not limited to the student’s name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized sports and activities, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees, and awards received, and the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended. The parent, guardian, or eligible student currently enrolled may request all or part of the directory information be withheld. The request must be in writing to the principal of the child’s school within 30 calendar days after this notification has been distributed. The written request must specifically state what information may not be classified as directory information.

    In accordance with federal regulations concerning the release or transfer of educational records, it is the policy of this school district to forward education records on request to a school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll. Parents may obtain upon request a copy of the records transferred.

    The Fulton County School District keeps child and youth records in a secure computer system and in locked files in each school and central office.

    Any parent or guardian of a student, or any eligible student, may challenge the content or accuracy of any material or entries in the student’s educational records on the grounds that it is inaccurate, misleading, or

    otherwise in violation of the privacy or other rights of the student. Requests to amend the records are submitted to the principal of the child’s school.

    For students who have been determined eligible or programs for children and youth with disabilities, educational records will be destroyed at the request of the parent when they are no longer needed to provide educational programs and services. The FCSD will destroy the educational records of a child or youth without a parent’s request after the records have been maintained for a minimum period of seven years and are no longer needed to provide educational programs and services. Parents are advised that data contained in the records may be later needed for social security purposes. The FCSD retains for an indefinite period of time a record of the student’s name, address, telephone number, grades, attendance record, classes attended, grades completed, and year completed.
