FERPA Update: How to Balance Compliance with Parent Relations

What rights can parents claim in institutional processes and how do administrators ensure compliance with FERPA? We'll help you understand and develop a successful parent relations strategy!

The role of parents in higher education has always raised questions and posed client-relations dilemmas for college and university administrators. FERPA explicitly assigns privacy rights to students, but campus administrators realize that parents have a critical and growing role on campus — particularly when things go criminally and psychologically wrong with students.

To eliminate the potential for campus tragedies, it's essential for your administrators and faculty to learn what to do about information sharing and vital disclosures to parents.

Join our FERPA expert, Clifford A. Ramirez, for this important audio learning event where he'll help you develop a clear understanding of students' and parents' rights under FERPA.

Highlights of this 60-minute session:

  • What the rights of privacy are according to FERPA
  • What role parents should play on campus
  • The specific parent exceptions in FERPA
  • How to create policies and procedures for developing productive parent relationships
  • And much more!

Learn to strike the right balance between ethical considerations and regulatory compliance when dealing with the parents and teachers your work to protect!
