FERPA Tutorial What Is an Educational Record? Be Aware!

Be aware! The contents of an educational record may appear in a variety of forms, such as a:

  • Handwritten document
  • Computer file
  • Computer screen
  • Printout
  • Verbal exchange

Student information must be handled with the same care, regardless of whether it is used in written, electronic, or verbal form.
