NASET Q & A Corner

Questions and Answers on Parent Rights to Confidentiality and Access to Student Records

Introduction

IDEA and other federal laws protect the confidentiality of a child’s education records. These safeguards address the following three aspects:

  • the use of personally identifiable information
  • who may have access to a child’s records
  • the rights of parents to inspect their child’s education records and request that these be amended to correct information that is misleading or inaccurate, or that violates the child’s privacy or other rights.

The focus of this issue of NASET’s Q & A Corner will be to address confidentiality and access to student records for parents
