The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
(FERPA) gives parents, or student's age 18 or older (eligible students), the right to inspect and review the student's education records maintained by the school. LCPS Policy 8630 includes the right to obtain a copy of the records. According to LCPS Reguation 4020, annually the school division shall provide free of charge one copy of a student’s scholastic record when it is 25 pages or less. Scholastic records in excess of 25 pages shall be charged at $0.10 per page beyond the initial 25 pages. All additional copies requested will be charged $0.10 per page for all pages. To submit a FERPA request:
- Fill out LCPS FERPA Request Form and submit to the school administrator
- Schedule an Inspect and Review meeting with the Principal or designee
- Copies may be provided at the meeting, or available in a reasonable amount of time
FERPA also gives parents and eligible students the right to seek to amend the student's education records. To initiate this process, fill out the LCPS Student Records Amendment Form and submit to the school administrator.
