Disclosing Educational Records

“Generally, schools cannot disclose to a third party information about the student from the educational records without signed and written consent from the parent or the eligible student. The signed and dated written consent may include a signature in
electronic form, provided it identifies the person giving the electronic consent and indicates his or her approval of the information contained within the consent. The written consent must specify which records are to be disclosed, state the reason for the
disclosure, and identify the individual or organization to which the disclosure is being made. The school is obligated, upon request, to provide parents or eligible students with copies of the records that are to be disclosed.”
