Privacy in Education: Guide for Parents and Adult-Age Students


Fact Sheet 29Privacy in Education:
Guide for Parents and Adult-Age Students

As soon as your child enters preschool, information is collected about him or her. The body of information grows throughout the child's academic career.

School records contain highly sensitive information, even information about the family. The contents of student files are likely to have an impact on the overall educational experience of students. That is why it is wise for parents and adult-age students to be informed about laws and policies that govern student information.

Privacy abuses can range from grades bandied about in hallways to the nonconsensual exposure of student information and photos on the Internet. In today’s climate of heightened security, it is more important than ever for parents and adult-age students to be vigilant about who has access to education records.

It's Back-to-School Time: Parents, Do You Know Where Your Child's School Records Are?


The PRC advises parents to pay close attention to documents and forms that students bring home from school. Among them is likely to be an opt-out form regarding the disclosure of students' education records. But if the parent does not sign the form instructing the school to NOT disclose the student's personal information to others, the school is free to release "directoy information." Directory information is NOT a small category. It can include the student's name, address, phone number, and date of birth, as well as major field of study, activities and sports, weight and height if on athletic teams, dates of attendance, and degrees and awards.
