Schools must annually notify parents and students in attendance of their rights under FERPA. The annual notification must: include information regarding a parent's right to inspect and review his or her child's education records, the right to seek to amend the records, the right to consent to disclosure of personally identifiable information from the records (except in certain circumstances), and the right to file a complaint with the Office regarding an alleged failure by a school to comply with FERPA.
The school must also inform parents of its definitions of the terms "school official" and "legitimate educational interest."Schools can publish their annual notification by various means, including: school's website, student handbook, calendar of school events, school newspaper, or posted in a central location at the school.
