FERPA provides protections for student records and imposes a number of obligations on school entities. Since FERPA was passed technology and new issues have developed that were not considered when the law was passed but nonetheless must have been addressed by school entities. Many of these issues have been highlighted by recent headlines, including immigration, security breach, publicity and other issues.
This session by expert speaker Timothy E. Gilsbach, Esq. will involve a review of all such issues involving FERPA. You will gain an understanding of FERPA and various issues that have been highlighted in recent news articles, including new technologies, data breaches, immigration and how to respond to publicity when it raises student privacy implications, and more.
