FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal Law, requires that MJS, with certain exceptions, obtain a parent’s written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your child’s educational records. However, MJS may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless you have advised the district to the contrary in accordance with district procedures. Examples of the use of directory information for school purposes might include a playbill; the annual yearbook; the honor roll; the graduation program; and school-approved parent organization contact lists.
