FERPA: Avoid Mistakes Across Campus - April 5, 2017 Webinar & CD
ISBN/ISSN: PUB#AC1045 FERPA.4.5.17
Everyone on campus who deals with any kind of student records — whether academic or not, formal or informal, permanent or temporary, paper or electronic, centrally or locally stored and even including email — MUST have a grounding in FERPA. There is nothing as fundamental to higher education practice and compliance as FERPA and there is perhaps nothing as misunderstood. Making assumptions about its scope and provisions can lead to mistakes, non-compliance and legal complaints.
Join FERPA expert, Steve McDonald, as he shares his insight into FERPA and its complexities. You’ll find practical steps and solutions and ensure you understand the rules and how to implement them correctly at your institution.
Steven J. McDonald is currently the General Counsel at Rhode Island School of Design. (Click here for full bio)
At the conclusion of the 90-minute webinar, you and your staff will be able to:
Recognize what is and what isn’t subject to FERPA — train everyone on campus who deals with any kind of student records properly and alleviate a FERPA violation.
Apply key disclosure exceptions. Know when and how to disclose to avoid compliance problems.
Identify and understand FERPA’s “forgotten” parts — students’ rights to “inspect and review” and “seek amendment of” the records that pertain to them.
Incorporate new ideas and practical steps to adapt and enhance your campus FERPA compliance.
Comprehend current FERPA compliance standards and learn about impending developments to adapt on your campus.
