Parent Rights

As a parent in Utah, you have specific data privacy rights related to your child's educational records and information. These rights are protected by federal and state laws, including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Utah state regulations. Here are your data privacy rights as a parent:

  • Access to Educational Records: You have the right to access your child's educational records. This includes the right to inspect and review these records within a reasonable time frame.
  • Request for Amendment: If you believe that any information in your child's educational records is inaccurate, misleading, or violates their privacy rights, you have the right to request that the school correct or amend the records.
  • Consent for Disclosure: Schools must obtain your written consent before disclosing personally identifiable information (PII) from your child's records to third parties, except in specific situations allowed by law (e.g., to school officials with legitimate educational interests).
  • Right to file a complaint: If you believe that your child's data privacy rights have been violated, you can file a complaint with the Utah State Board of Education or the U.S. Department of Education's Student Privacy Policy Office.
