FERPA and Virtual Learning (March 2020)


As increasing numbers of educators and students move to virtual learning during this time of social distancing due to COVID-19, join representatives from the U.S. Department of Education's Student Privacy Policy Office (SPPO) for a webinar to review some frequently asked questions on the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and implications for distance learning due to school closures.

There is a FERPA & Virtual Learning Webinar on Monday, March 30, 2020. (This webinar is full.) All event materials, including the webinar recording, will be available at SPPO's web-site at https://studentprivacy.ed.gov. Additional related resources available on this web-site include:
