Tuesday, May 2
To fulfill Echols County Schools’ obligation under the Georgia Student Data Privacy, Accessibility, and Transparency Act, the Echols County Board of Education at its March 14 meeting adopted policies JR-Student Records and JRA-Student Data Privacy Complaints.
The district is committed to securing student data and informing parents of their rights under the Family Educational Rights and privacy Act (FERPA) and the Student Data privacy, Accessibility, and Transparency Act of Georgia. Policy JRA also establishes a process for making student data privacy complaints.
At the March 14 meeting, the Board approved revised language for the student handbook to reflect the new policies. The district and school websites will address confidentiality of student and parent rights under FERPA by placing this notice on the home pages.
Policies JR and JRA are linked below (see eBoard on district website for these and other policies). Revisions will be made to the student handbook.
· FERPA Directory Information and Parent Rights
· ECBOE JR and JRA Policies and JRA-E(1)/JRA-E(2) Complaint Forms
