Student Privacy Through FERPA

  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), also known as the Buckley Amendment, protects the privacy of student records. In adherence to this law, Carroll faculty and staff does not disclose grades, performance or attendance with parents unless the student allows this. Students may obtain the form, Permission to Release Educational Records Information, in the Records Office (A112). Carroll encourages parents to discuss this important issue with their students.
