Department of Education Finalizes FERPA Regulations (12/1/11)

The Department of Education has just released final regulations amending the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). From their site: “The changes to the FERPA regulations will have the important effect of improving access to data. Improved access to data will facilitate States’ ability to evaluate education programs, ensure limited resources are invested effectively, build upon what works and discard what does not, increase accountability and transparency, and contribute to a culture of innovation and continuous improvement in education.”

For more information, visit: http://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/index.html. The site also includes two overview documents: one for state educational agencies (SEAs) and local educational agencies (LEAs), and a second for parents and students. The regulations (including a summary) are available at: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-12-02/pdf/2011-30683.pdf
