KSBA schedules special training for Kentucky school staff on compliance with student record confidentiality issues

      Do you and your staff understand how to comply with student records confidentiality and FERPA (Federal Education Records Privacy Act) issues?

      The U.S. Department of Education’s FERPA compliance office recently issued new student records regulations. That office also announced it is ramping up its enforcement of FERPA regulations.

      On Aug. 10 in Lexington, KSBA staff will be providing a four-hour seminar on the latest rules and interpretations for FERPA compliance. We will cover the numerous policies and procedures districts must have in place, as well as court cases and Family Policy Compliance Office (FPCO) opinions.
