The digital age has made communication much easier and more hassle-free, with the use of Email. At time when we expect instant answers and responses, email interactions constitute a major part of our communication,both personal and professional. But if there are pros, then there are cons too connected with this medium. There is an area where communication via email can lead to liabilities and an act of litigation.

That very sector is education in which student and parents communicate with school staff via e-mails. As schools increase the use of technology to communicate with and about students, questions arise about the intersection between the data created and student records laws, such as the FERPA. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is federal legislation enacted in 1974 that controls student records. It grants students the right to access their own educational records as well as limiting, for privacy reasons, the release of those same records to anyone other than the student. FERPA applies to all current and former students of the University.

Clearly, email is a huge security hazard, with every message carrying grades potentially a threat to FERPA compliance. Come and join us in this webinar to understand the use of e-mails under FERPA.

Key Features of the Conference:

As the era of report cards comes to an end, many schools/universities are finding themselves navigating new terrain. Not only do schools and educational institutes have to make student records easily accessible for both students and administrators, but they also have to make sure they’re still keeping up with FERPA compliance.

This conference with speaker Timothy E. Gilbasch will outline how to maintain Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) compliant communications between teachers, administrators, parents, and students, which is a must in today’s environment. By using end-to-end email encryption,education professionals can protect student privacy and help maintain FERPA email compliance.

According to Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), all faculty members are legally and ethically obliged to protect the privacy of student information. Many times this presents unique challenges for faculty that how to effectively use e-mails in the educational context. This webinar will provide a general overview of the issues teachers and staff encounter when following FERPA guidelines while using emails. It will also outline when e-mails are considered educational records subject to production to parents and student and when they can be ordered to be produced in other litigation contexts.
