Educators' Responsibilities for Student Records. A Model Policy and Rules (Revised).
Bartlett, Larry D.; And Others
To assist Iowa school boards and administrators in handling student records, this revision of a 1976 publication presents model policies and rules for compliance with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and the Education for All Handicapped Children Act. Included in this guide are a model statement of school board policy on student records and a model statement of board rules that covers 22 areas, from the definition of student records to data collection, administrative responsibilities, and notification of parents and students of their rights. Model forms are provided for notifying the public regarding student records rights, recording reviews and inspections of student records, requesting records, notifying parents or guardians of the transfer of records, and requesting the release of student records to a third party. A concluding 27-point checklist helps boards determine whether they are in compliance with student records laws. (RW)
