The amount of student data being collected is soaring. Coupled with the growing use of technology for storing and sharing data, it’s more difficult than ever for schools to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

FERPA, a federal law that protects the privacy and sensitivity of student education records, gives certain rights to students (or their parents) over their education records and sets high standards for viewing and transferring data.

To help schools meet these high standards for student data privacy, we created this downloadable, printable checklist. In it, you will find eight steps to take to ensure your school complies with FERPA.
