Shared Responsibility in Student Record Keeping and Dissemination.
Long, Thomas E., Ed.; Hudson, George R., Ed.
This monograph presents three papers which examine policy questions and the conflict inherent in safeguarding individual rights to privacy and the management of pupil records. The first paper discusses the Russell Sage Document that outlines guidelines for the collection, maintenance, and dissemination of pupil records. To reduce the legal vulnerability of the school in the matter of student records, the document recommends informed consent from parents and pupils, verification of accuracy, limited access, selective discard, and appropriate use of information about students. The second paper deals with problems associated with school records and shared responsibility for student records between public secondary and public post-secondary schools. The third paper addresses itself to "in loco parentis", and student records in shared responsibility situations between secondary schools and institutions of higher education. The monograph concludes with the presentation of specific guidelines for use in shared student records alliances. (Author/LAA)
