FERPA=The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records, even from the parents. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. The Data Collection is done without parental consent. The collection is done with all age levels including personal data considered by many as an invasion of privacy. To receive more Federal Dollars Governor Kitzhaber got a Federal waiver on FERPA and HIPPA to merge your children’s information into one large data base including the parents personal and financial information.
