Addressing Student Privacy Issues

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) specifies how information contained within student records may be used and who has access to these data. Accountability requirements within Perkins IV also place expectations for state reporting of longitudinal information related to student placement into advanced education and training and employment. This interactive session provides an overview of FERPA regulations as they relate to CTE and allows time for states to dialogue with federal staff about the challenges they face in collecting student follow-up data.
Note: Because questions from the audience were not audible during most of the Q&A section, only answers are seen and heard in this recording. As input from the speaker and attendees is gathered, a document with the questions asked will be added to this page.
