Why is confidentiality important?

 The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a federal law establishing confidentiality rights for students and families. It protects the privacy of a student’s records. 

Specific Reasons:

-       Protects against disclosure of embarrassing personal               information

-       Protects family security

-       Protects the family and student from fear of retaliation,             discrimination, prejudicial treatment, or stigmatization

Informed and voluntary consent is used to insure confidentiality occurs within our programs. Everything is kept confidential unless:

  • there is a signed release
  • judicial orders are received
  • occurring within school staff with having  legitimate educational reasons
  • a student shares about harm to self or others/ safety concern (These things need to be reported to keep the student and others safe.)
  • it is considered directory information such as a newsletter or program for an event
