  2. 2. TWO TOPICS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE! FERPA HIPPA Public Information Act Social Media
  3. 3. FERPA, HIPAA, and the Public Information Act Brad Domitrovich
  4. 4. FERPA  The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.
  5. 5. More FERPA ...  FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level. Students to whom the rights have transferred are quot;eligible students.quot;
  6. 6. Even More FERPA ...  Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31):  School officials with legitimate educational interest.
  7. 7. HIPAA  The HIPAA Privacy Rule creates national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information.
  8. 8. Public Information Act  Government is the servant, not the master.  People are entitled to complete information, with limited exceptions.  Government does not get to decide what is good for the people to know.
  9. 9. General Rules of PI  Information is public unless it fits one of the exceptions in the statute.  Applies to information “collected, assembled or maintained” in connection with official business.
  10. 10. General Rules (continued)  Includes a book, paper, letter, document, printout, photo, film, tape, microfiche, microfilm, photostat, sound recording, map, drawing, voice, data or video representation in computer memory.
  11. 11. Student Records  This chapter does not require the release of information contained in education records of an educational agency or institution except in conformity with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. (FERPA)
  12. 12. Common Exceptions: I  Information that is “confidential by law.”  Information in a personnel file if the disclosure would be a “clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.”  Your college transcript, except for degree obtained and curriculum studied.
  13. 13. Common Exceptions: II  Information pertaining to pending litigation.  Information that would give a bidder an advantage.  Location or appraisal of property under consideration.  Home address, phone number of public employees who exercise “opt out” option.  SSN.
