Are My Student's Records Released

Are My Student's Records Released

Combined student test results are released to the general public (and always have been) based on a compilation of student performance, NOT by individual pupil results. There are no names or identifying information tied to the public records. This is required for school accountability. Again, this hasn't changed and is nothing new with Common Core, or with the new accountability system.

Student education records (including assessment results) are official and confidential documents protected by one of the nation's strongest privacy protection laws, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). This law prevents the state and any educational institution from releasing individual test results to the public, including corporations. There is no validity to this claim.

 

The law requires parental consent for LEAs (Schools) and state agencies to release any student records, including test scores.
