Pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 C.F.R. part 99), the written consent of a parent or eligible student is required before the education records of a student, or personally identifiable information contained therein, may be disclosed to a third party, unless an exception to this general requirement of written consent applies. If a student is age 18 years or older, or is enrolled in an institution of postsecondary education, he or she is an “eligible student” and must provide written consent for the disclosure of his or her education records or personally identifiable information contained therein.
You need to stop by the Registrar’s Office to sign the FERPA release. If we do not have one on file, we will not release any records of yours to anyone, including parents after you turn 18. If you are attending college or seeking a job out of state and your are not able to pick up a transcript, you will have to give us permission for someone else other than you to pick it up. It is attached so you can download a copy and bring to the High School Registrar.
