FERPA Training : Q1A
You may not give out the information because:
- FERPA recognizes secondary education students as adults who are entitled to privacy.
- Although the student’s directory information is not suppressed, grades are non-directory information and may not be released.
You may refer the parent to the Office of Records and Registration for further evaluation of the request. If the student is a legal dependent, the Office of Records and Registration may release the information after the parent has supplied appropriate documentation to the University.
