The Kentucky School Boards Association is hosting a FERPA Conference on Aug. 10 at the Clarion Hotel in Lexington. 

The U.S. Department of Education’s FERPA compliance office recently issued new student records regulations. That office also announced it is ramping up its enforcement of FERPA regulations.

 Why is FERPA Compliance Important?

  • Violations can damage a student/parent.
  • Civil Liability
  • Damages
  • It is Federal Law.
  • U.S. Dept. of Education can withhold all district federal funding.
  • Education Professional Standards Board can suspend/revoke a teaching certificate.
