Under the federal Family Educational Rights Privacy Act FERPA parents and guardians have a right to inspect their child’s school records and opt-out of directory information, thus restricting third-party access to their personal information such as address and date of birth.

Schools are obligated under FERPA to notify parents of this right at the beginning of the school year. Has your children’s school notified you? Why is this right to opt-out important?

Schools are a rich source of personal information about children that can be legally and illegally accessed by third parties. Parents concerned about their children’s privacy should be aware of how easily personally identifiable information can be bought and sold by marketers as well as by identity thieves. The Federal Trade Commission recently issued a Consumer Alert to parents warning of the risk of children’s identity theft and urging parents to safeguard their children’s school records and directory information.

FERPA was enacted in to protect the privacy of education records and directory information — which can include name, address, phone number, date of birth, and e-mail address, among other personally identifiable information.

Updated Monday February 16, The report strongly urges all entities in the mobile app industry — including app stores, app developers, and third parties providing services within the apps — to accelerate efforts to ensure that parents have the key information they need to make decisions about the apps they download for their children.

The report also urges industry to implement recommendations in the recent FTC Privacy Report including: Breaches involving PII are hazardous to both individuals and organizations.

Individual harms may include identity theft, embarrassment, or blackmail. Organizational harms may include a loss of public trust, legal liability, or remediation costs. To appropriately protect the confidentiality of PII, organizations should use a risk-based approach; as McGeorge Bundy once stated, “If we guard our toothbrushes and diamonds with equal zeal, we will lose fewer toothbrushes and more diamonds.

The recommendations in this document are intended primarily for U.

Federal government agencies and those who conduct business on behalf of the agencies, but other organizations may find portions of the publication key.

To effectively protect PII, organizations should implement the following recommendations. Session 2 Linda Foley is the ferap of the Identity Theft Resource Center, a nationwide nonprofit, victim-services advocacy, and consumer-education program based in San Diego, California. Russell Butler is Executive Director of the Maryland Crime Victims Resource Center, which provides criminal justice information and education, support services, therapeutic individual, family, and group counseling, and legal information, referrals, and representation to victims of crime.


While we recognize that SSA cannot prohibit States or K schools from collecting and using SSNs as student identifiers or for other purposes, we believe SSA can help reduce the threat of identity theft and SSN misuse by encouraging States and K schools to reduce unnecessary collection of SSNs and improve protections and safeguards when collected.

School officials who want to develop a more meaningful and robust protection of privacy should talk to government officials who are tasked with complying with HIPAA. Because FERPA does not provide adequate oversight and enforcement of cloud computing providers, schools must be especially aggressive and assume the responsibility. This is an issue that should be of great concern to parents since educational ldy possess a staggering amount of personal data about students, and this data can currently be outsourced to nearly any company anywhere — even to a cloud computing provider in the most totalitarian country in the world!

That goes for information sites ask for up-front, and information your kids choose to post about themselves. Under COPPA, sites also have le post privacy policies that give details about what kind of information they collect from kids — and what they might do with it say, to send a weekly newsletter, direct advertising to them, or give the information to other companies.

What Can You Do? Date Captured Saturday December 21, Nothing is out of bounds. No list is too obnoxious to sell. Data brokers sell lists that allow for the use of racial, ethnic and other factors that would be illegal or unacceptable in other circumstances. These lists and scores are used everyday to make decisions about how consumers can participate in the economic marketplace. Their information determines who gets in and who gets shut out. All of this must change. I urge you to take action.

What process is Education using to catalog its data collections, and to what extent does that process include internal controls to ensure the accuracy of the information collected? The purpose of the Act is to protect the privacy of students by establishing standards for the disclosure of directory information about students by schools. Taken by itself, the release of this information is not harmful to a student.

The release of this combined record could lead to harm or embarrassment. Thus, the privacy and data protection program should focus on PII that will be maintained in the electronic student record system with its likely wealth of student data.

For example, without a directory information policy, FERPA would require schools to obtain consent for every student every time it wants to publish a yearbook. However, many schools have been forgoing designations of directory information, as they have concluded that such designations would put students at risk of becoming targets of marketing campaigns, the media, or even victims of criminal acts.

These amendments are needed to ensure that the U. Department of Education Department or we continues to implement FERPA in a way that protects the privacy of education records while allowing for the effective use of data.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy.

The proposed changes to FERPA do not adequately address the capacity of marketers and other commercial enterprises to capture, use, and re-sell student information. Even with privacy controls in place, it is also far too easy for individuals to get a hold of student information and use it for illegal purposes, including identity theft, child abduction in custody battles, and domestic violence.

Few parents are aware, for example, that anyone can request — and receive — a student directory from a school. Data and information breaches occur every day in Pre-K schools across the country, so that protecting student privacy has become a matter of plugging holes in a dyke rather than advancing a comprehensive policy that makes student privacy protection the priority.

The Study finds that large amounts of personally identifiable data and sensitive personal information about children are stored by the state departments of education in electronic warehouses or for the states by third party vendors.

These data warehouses typically lack adequate privacy protections, such as clear access and use restrictions and data retention policies, are often not compliant with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, and leave K children unprotected from data misuse, improper data release, and data breaches. The Study provides recommendations for best practices and legislative reform to address these privacy problems. Who’s Watching Your Children?
