School Records & Confidentiality
A number of state and federal laws protect the confidentiality of both your child’s health information and educational records and guarantee your right to access that information. These include:
- Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).HIPAA protects your child’s health information.
- The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (called FERPA).FERPA protects the confidentiality of your child’s education records and guarantees you the right of access to your child’s education records. Information that is protected by FERPA’s confidentiality requirements is not protected by HIPAA.
- All student records, including Evaluation Reports and Individualized Education Plans, are kept confidential in accordance with law.
Please note: Education records cannot be released to other agencies without a Release of Information signed by the parent/guardian.
Students will receive physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy and social skills as identified on the Related Services section of their IEP. The therapist will contact the assigned teacher to set up a schedule.
