In this Leadership Webinar, US Department of Education Chief Privacy Office representatives provide FERPA guidance and answer questions about its applicability to blended and online learning. In addition, Themy Sparangis from the Los Angeles Unified School District provides examples about how a large school district protects student privacy.

There is public concern about how technology is changing the way data are collected and used. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is the federal law that protects personally identifiable information from students’ education records from unauthorized disclosure.
