Because of the pandemic, student record privacy has taken on new dimensions that educators haven't had to consider before. How do schools protect student privacy as students switch among remote, hybrid and in-person learning? Does data used and collected through virtual learning platforms qualify as education records under FERPA? When is it appropriate to disclose student health or vaccination records?

This webinar with school attorney Geneva Jones will guide school staff through these unfamiliar issues and more, combining explanation of legal requirements with practical strategies. You'll learn about specific provisions of FERPA relevant to K-2 schools as well as how technologies being used in post-pandemic education expose schools to potential FERPA violations.

Plus, you'll gain best practices to ensure compliance with FERPA and to protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable student information regardless of instructional setting, including how to:

  • Apply federal privacy law, local district policy and classroom/campus observations rules to in-person, remote and hybrid instruction
  • Identify when a technology used for instruction creates a protected education record
  • Interact with students using multiple modalities and in multiple settings without violating FERPA
  • Recognize when parental consent is needed to disclose education records to third parties
  • And much more!
