Confidentiality of Student Records

It is the policy of the State Board of Regents and its institutions and schools to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act ("Buckley Amendment") and, in doing so, to protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable educational records of students and former students. Each faculty and staff member employed by the Board of Regents or its institutions and schools is individually responsible for complying with the Buckley Amendment, and violations may subject the faculty or staff member to disciplinary action. Appropriate references to this policy shall be included in each faculty and staff handbook and shall be included in orientation sessions for new employees who work with or have access to student records.
