Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of students’ education records. This law gives parents/guardians, and students over 18 years of age (“eligible students”), certain rights with respect to student education records. Lexington is required to inform parents/guardians of these rights.
