The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) refers to the federal law protecting the privacy of students’ educational records. Every school that receives funds from the U.S. Department of Education is required to follow FERPA rules, or incur a harsh penalty. If you’re a law firm working with a school district, this rule also applies to you. Any business that works with a school organization needs to make sure that they’re abiding by FERPA rules. We provide nuanced expertise by administering FERPA compliance assessments, so you never have to worry about falling behind. Protecting student records at an educational institution from data breaches and hackers is crucial for complying with FERPA.
