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 record. FERPA gives a parent/guardian (“Parent”) certain rights with respect to their children's education record. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level (an "Eligible Student"). The student education record of Eligible Students can only be released to a Parent with written consent from the Eligible Student, by providing other legal documentation, or by certifying the Eligible Student was a dependent for tax purposes the previous tax year.

In accordance with FERPA and under Poudre School District Policy JRA/JRC, a student’s education record will not be released to a third-party without written consent, unless such disclosure is permitted under FERPA.

UPDATE 10/01/2020: Per SB20-175, student transcripts may no longer include national assessment, SAT or ACT, scores. While this practice was required previously, this bill changed that practice.
