Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Understanding their rights and maintaining compliance with FERPA is a challenge for schools, colleges, and universities who receive funding from the United States Department of Education. From releasing information to complying with a judicial order to amending education records, how these matters are handled is critically important. For example, the simple act of publishing student directories has legal implications under FERPA. Our attorneys advise and represent clients on a variety of compliance matters, including FERPA.
