The Texas FERPA Story. Brief 5
O'Brien, Dan
National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research
This research brief describes the legal and operational structure of the Texas longitudinal data system related to recent changes in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)--which establishes the rights of parents to access their children's educational records and protects the confidentiality of student information--that more closely align law and practice. The U.S. Department of Education's FERPA Final Regulations Amendments took effect January 8, 2009. Texas has developed a FERPA-compliant structure to enable research using linked longitudinal individual student records that accommodates projects which will benefit education in the state.
